10 January 2015, 10:21

Nairobi - A member of Migori County Assembly will spend 15 years in jail after a court found him guilty of defiling a minor.

Rongo Senior Resident Magistrate Purity Rugut found Lukas Masa Hura, who until his conviction was serving as a County Representative for Ntimaru East Ward, guilty of defiling a 13-year-old girl in May last year, The Standard reported.

Earlier on, the Class Six pupil had told the court that the politician dragged her into a lodging and defiled her before police stormed the room where they were in and arrested him.

He tried to bribe the policemen with KES 4000 but they declined and took him to a police station where he managed to escape.

He took to the defence stand alone saying his lawyer was not doing enough work to have him released.
