A Kenyan court has handed a man a life sentence for defiling a 9- year-old boy in Murang'a, central Kenya.
The court's Chief Magistrate P. Maina said there is enough evidence linking the suspect John Chege to the heinous act.
According to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution, Chege had lured the minor to his home by promising him a pen as a reward for "the work he had done for him."
P. Main said Chege took advantage of the minor's trust and was not remorseful.
Chege has 14 days to appeal against the ruling.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
