A 24-year-old Kenyan lady has been sentenced to 15 years in jail by a local court after she was convicted of defiling a 16 year old boy.
Wandera was accused of defiling the minor on various dates with witnesses lined up by the prosecution testifying to the offense.
A prosecutor, Nyakundi Mukaya, showed the court a medical evidenc confirming that the two of them were have an intimate affair.
He explained that the boy dropped out of school and moved into her home for four months before he was rescued by the police.
“The boy was rescued on July 7, 2017, and the accused was arrested by police officers,” said Mukaya. After the rescue, he said, the boy was taken to a correctional facility before he was released back to his parents.
The parents of the boy told the court that after their son met the woman, he before un interested in school and dropped out before the police intervened in the matter.
Wandera however said that she did not know that the boy was a minor adding that he was a drug addict by the time they met. “We met at a drinking joint one evening of April 2016 in Kondele where he even offered to buy me drinks.
We exchanged phone contacts and started dating,” Wandera added that she could not establish the age of the boy because he was also a boda boda operator (commercial motorcycle rider) and only appeared “young when he came to testify”.
“He had dreadlocks when we met and only appeared young after his dreadlocks were shaved before he was brought to court to testify,” said Wandera in her defence.
