A pastor from Ndia Constituency, Kirinyaga County has been sentenced to 140 years in jail for defiling his two daughters - a 14 and 16-year-old.
Baricho Senior Principal Magistrate Anthony Mwicigi gave him a 70-year sentence for sexually assaulting each daughter. Because the sentence will be continuous, the pastor will spend 140 years in prison.
On January 5, 2021, the 51-year-old admitted to committing the offence and was put on remand until January 7th. The pastor shifted the blamed to the devil for the crimes and asked his daughters and the court to forgive him.
Based on the information provided on the charge sheet, the pastor first committed the offence between June 1st and June 30th, 2019. The second offence happened between August 1st and August 31st, 2020 in Kianyakiru village in Ndia Constituency.
