Man gets life for defiling 6-year-old daughter

02 October 2013, 15:20 Wilshere

Nakuru - A Middle-aged man was on Wednesday sentenced to life imprisonment after a Nakuru court found him guilty of defiling his six-year-old daughter.

Jones Kwamesa was charged with defiling his class one daughter on 22nd August, 2012 at his home at Mzee Wanyama area in Pipeline Estate, Nakuru, but was released on a KES 300 000 bond pending investigations.  

During hearing of the case, the daughter (name withheld) had narrated to the court how the father called her to his bedroom and ordered her to strip before defiling her and ordered her not to disclose the ordeal.

The court heard that the victim later disclosed the matter to her mother who reported the incident to the police prompting the arrest of the accused.

Delivering the sentence, senior resident magistrate, Judy Nthuku, said that the offence was a serious one and contravenes the sexual offence Act under section 8 (2) and needs deterrent measures.
