Man slapped with life imprisonment for defiling minor

A 23-year-old man will serve life imprisonment for defiling an 11-year-old girl.

Erick Matheka, who appeared before Principal Magistrate Judicaster Nthuku at Loitoktok Law Courts, was charged that on the dates of between November 28 and 29, 2021, at Isinet area, he defiled the minor.

While testifying before the court, the girl told the court how, on November 27, 2021, she had gone to fetch water when she met Mama Ann, mother to the accused, washing clothes.

Mama Ann requested that she help her carry clothes to her house, where she locked her in her house.

She narrated how the woman invited her son, the accused, into the house, where he defiled her.

The minor narrated how the two continued locking her in the house, and the accused defiled her repeatedly until the morning of November 29, when she was released to go home.

Meanwhile, Digna Festo, mother to the minor, had made a report of her missing daughter at Isinet Police Station, which led the police to launch a manhunt for the minor.

The accused and his mother went into hiding until June 25 last year, when the accused was arrested and charged with the offense.
