A  45-year old man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after a Nakuru court found him guilty of defiling his lover's 13-year-old daughter. According to proceedings, Joshua Mbuva Mwanzia lured the minor with Ksh 100 in the incident that took place on June 14, 2020, at Mzee Wanyama in Nakuru East Sub-county.

While reading the verdict,  Nakuru Principal Magistrate, Yvonne Khatambi stated that the law had to impose such a hefty punishment due to rampant rape cases in the area.
