Kibera Law Court Principal Magistrate Zainab Abdul, sentenced four men to 30 years in prison on Thursday, 23 May 2024, for defiling a 14-year-old girl at Laini Saba area in Kibera, Nairobi County on the New Year’s Eve of 2022.

Emmanuel Mutemi, Kennedy Irungu, Peter Mwaura, and Ben Thuo were found guilty by Magistrate Abdul, who stated that the prosecution had proven the case beyond reasonable doubt, based on testimonies from nine witnesses and the evidence presented in court.

According to the submission made to the court, the victim and a friend were returning home from a church service at midnight, when four men attacked them, luckily her friend managed to escape. The victim was then taken to an abandoned mud house, and defiled by the four perpetrators until daybreak.

In her testimony, the victim painfully narrated how the men threatened to kill her if she dared to scream or report them as she had clearly seen their faces since the street light illumination was visibly bright.

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) highlighted that the victim’s detailed account and identification of the four men was crucial in securing the conviction.
