Karanja agreed with the submissions made by Prosecution Counsel, Bessie Gikonyo, on the maximum sentence of life imprisonment to be meted out to the accused.

She acknowledged that the offence is prevalent in the county and that deterrent measures should be put in place.

While delivering her verdict, the magistrate emphasised that the compelling evidence presented by the four prosecution witnesses, including the 8-year-old victim and a medical Doctor indeed confirmed that the accused committed the offence.

She also highlighted that the act greatly affected the children and the mother and that they had to undergo psycho-social support before testifying in court.
