By Antynet Ford

A gang of Four men has today  been sentenced to 30 years in prison after they were found guilty of defiling a 14-year-old girl at Laini Saba area of  Kibera Slums , Nairobi.

Emmanuel Mutemi, Kennedy Irungu, Peter Mwaura, and Ben Thuo committed the offence on the eve of the 2022 new year.

While delivering the sentence, Kibera Law Courts Principal Magistrate Zainab Abdul ruled that the prosecution proved the case beyond reasonable doubt through testimonies of nine prosecution witnesses whose testimonies and exhibits in court placed the four at the scene of the crime.

“The magistrate also noted that the offence of Defilement has become so rampant in Kibra hence, the sentence should be a deterrent to those intending to pursue that direction in society.” The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions noted in a statement.

Submissions at the court indicate that the victim was heading home from a church service to usher in the new year on 1st January 2022 at midnight when the  gang of four accosted her and her friend.

The friend of the victim managed to escape but she was cornered by the men who took her to a nearby abandoned mud house and took turns to defile her from midnight until daybreak.
