A court in Kilifi has sentenced a man to 40 years in jail for defilement.
Kilifi Resident Magistrate Daniel Sitati found the Kahindi Charo Kupata also known as ‘Kingwendu’ alias ‘wax’ alias ‘Biware’ from Kahingoni village in Dida Location Ganze sub county guilty of defiling the 9 years grade two minor on 25th January this year at Madamani
Kupata, a bodaboda operator and a disco matanga DJ was also serving a three years sentence on probation after he was found guilty of defiling a 10 years old girl.
He was supposed to complete his sentence on 23rd August 2021.
Kupata defiled the minor while she was coming from school in the evening. The accused who had had been sent to buy maize flour offered her a lift on his motorcycle.
The girl boarded the motorcycle expecting the accused to take her home but he diverted to a nearby bush, tore her pant into pieces and defiled her.
He left her in the bush without any help. She walked slowly to a nearby market where she met a woman and narrated her ordeal.
The minor identified the accused as a friend to her uncle and he used to visit her home frequently.
According to Sitati he lacked words to describe the most heinous and beastly act from a person expected to protect and provide security to children.
“Where will such children run to if those that they hope to defend them and provide security for them are the ones who turn against them and defile them?” asked Sitati.
“The accused person has come out as a most dangerous human being that should be found near a girl and must not be allowed to roam freely and breathe in the air of liberty in a society that clearly abhors persons of this character,” he said
He added that a clear detent message must be sent out to any aspiring pedophile anywhere that children have rights too.
The Magistrate cancelled the probation sentence to allow the accused to start serving his jail terms.
