A court in Siaya, southwestern of Kenya, has handed a 53-year-old man 20 years in jail for defiling his 12-year-old daughter.
The court heard that the convict lured his two daughters, the victim, and her 8-year-old sister, to his bedroom on a fateful night.
He directed them to sleep in his bed since the roof in the sitting room where the girls slept was leaking.
“The victim was woken up to some discomfort during the incident where she was defiled,” noted the office of The Director of Public Persecution.
The man then vowed to kill the girl if she dared speak it out.
He was also slapped with an extra year for threatening to take away her life.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
