A former children’s home director, Stephen Nzuki Mutisya, has been sentenced to 100 years in prison for defiling four minors in his care.
Nzuki received a lengthy sentence from Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Zainab Abdul, who described the act as beastly and inhuman.
Magistrate Zainab stated that Nzuki should have protected the minors but defiled them several times.
“There is no doubt offences committed are very serious and carry a heavy penalty. It is, therefore, the responsibility of this court to impose a deterrent sentence to other would-be offenders.”
During the case hearing, it was revealed that Nzuki would defile the minors while quoting the Bible to convince them that it was correct and permitted.
In count one, where the minor was nine years old at the time of the offence, the accused will serve 50 years. He will also serve 20 years for defiling a 15-year-old and 20 years for defiling a 13-year-old.
The offences were committed between 2010 and 2016 at Screams Africa children’s home at Mihang’o within the Utawala area.
In addition, Nzuki was found guilty of the offence of indecent act with a minor and will serve 10 years.
Nzuki had pleaded for leniency and asked the court for a non-custodial sentence, but the prosecution objected and requested the court to impose the maximum sentence.
