Man sentenced to life in jail for defiling his two daughters

A Kiambu court has sentenced a man to life imprisonment after finding him guilty of repeatedly defiling his two daughters.

Boniface Macharia collapsed immediately after the sentence was read out to him by Kiambu resident magistrate Monica Kivuti.

Macharia had been charged with two counts of incest committed at Kiwanja village in Kasarani where he unlawfully defiled his 14 and 17 years old daughters.

The 17 year old told the court that her father lured her into his bedroom as the mother was away in Murang’a attending a funeral and ordered her to undress. She refused, but the man forced himself on her.

The younger sibling also told the court that her father had previouslydefiled her but she did not share this with anyone after he threatened her.

The two sisters were taken to MSF hospital the following day before telling their mother.
