140 Years In Jail: Kirinyaga Pastor Who Defiled His Daughters

Remember the Kirinyaga pastor who pleaded guilty to defiling his two daughters? Baricho Senior Principal Magistrate Anthony Mwicigi gave the clergyman a 70-year sentence for sexually assaulting each daughter which means the pastor will spend 140 years in prison.

On January 5, 2021, the pastor admitted to committing the offense and was put on remand until January 7th. He shifted the blame to the devil for the crimes and asked his daughters and the court to forgive him.

Earlier, after committing the crimes, the man ran away from his home but was cornered in Mbeere South where he had disguised himself as a desperate herder from Somalia who was looking for a job.

What sold him out, the police said, was his accent and suspicious residents got hold of him and reported to the local chief who notified the police.
