Mandera man jailed for life for defiling 11-year-old girl

In Summary

  • According to Magistrate Mukabi Kimani, he relied on evidence from two prosecution witnesses to jail the accused.

A man in Mandera County has been sentenced to life in prison for defiling an 11-year-old girl.

Mandera Senior Resident Magistrate Mukabi Kimani slapped the accused, Adan Ibrahim, with the hefty jail term despite a missing police file.

According to the Magistrate, he relied on evidence from two prosecution witnesses in convicting and jailing the accused.

According to the victim‘s mother, she had contacted Ibrahim to construct a food rack at their house. Her daughter was inside the house.

Upon coming back at around 7 pm, she found her daughter unconscious.

“The girl said the man had applied something on her nose before defiling her,” reports the Director of Public Prosecution. Ibrahim was subsequently arrested.

Mandera Menace

As the case was going on, the prosecution led by State Counsel Patrick Onjoro had applied to the court to cancel Ibrahim’s bond for allegedly threatening the girl’s father.

In his ruling, Magistrate Kimani observed that interference with prosecution witnesses impedes the successful prosecution of sexual offence cases.
