- Tulel said the man had been found guilty in both counts and should therefore serve life sentences in both.
- The second was also defiled in the same way, the court heard. A medical officer who testified in court said the man defiled the minors.
A man who defiled two minors aged four and eight in Kawangware has been handed two separate life sentences after he was found guilty.
Kibera senior resident magistrate William Tulel said the sentences will run one after the other.
The court said the prosecution proved its case against KR beyond reasonable doubt.
Tulel said the man had been found guilty in both counts and should therefore serve life sentences in both.
The accused had been accused of defiling BIS on diverse dates between June 28 and July 15, 2022
In count two, he was charged with defiling PR on the same date, time and place.
He also faced further charges of committing indecent acts with a child contrary to the law.
While sentencing the man, the magistrate noted that he needed to be kept away from society.
The magistrate dismissed the accused person's defense stating that it lacked credibility.
The court further said that the offence was barbaric and the case against the accused person was proved beyond any doubt.
“The offence was barbaric and the only way the accused person can be assaulted is to have him serve a life sentence. The court has considered his defense and mitigation alongside the prosecution evidence," the magistrate ruled.
"All the witnesses who testified including the minors clearly showed that the accused person committed the offence and he is hereby sentenced to serve life imprisonment."
While testifying in court, the eight-year-old minor said she was playing with her friend, the second complainant when the accused person told them to get to his house so that he could help them watch some cartoons.
“When we entered his house, he covered our faces with some clothes and used his fingers to defile me,” she told the court.
She said that she felt a lot of pain and by the time he was committing the offence, his son was away.
“He told his son to go and play and defiled me,” she told the court.
The second was also defiled in the same way, the court heard. A medical officer who testified in court said the man defiled the minors.
But the accused denied the offence saying the case was a setup.
He said that he never committed the offence and urged the court to dismiss the case.
The convict has 14 days within which to appeal if he wished to do so.
