Woman gets 15 years imprisonment for raping boy

By ALLAN TAWAI

A 24-year-old woman shocked a packed Kisumu court after admitting to having sex with a 16 year old boy.

Judith Wandera was on Wednesday found guilty of defilement and intentionally performing indecent act on a minor contrary to sexual offences act, on July 5, 2017 at Kicomi area.

Seven witnesses testified against her in the case while she never presented any, only defending herself during the entire trial.

The magistrate, after considering all the evidence presented by the complainant, ruled that she agreed the two knew each other and had copulated on numerous occasions.

Principal Magistrate Joan Wambilyanga in her judgment said the two were arrested on July 17, one year after they had started getting sexually involved.

“Both admitted having sex, sometimes protected, sometimes unprotected. According to her, she could not tell how many times they did it,” said Ms Wambilyanga.

In her defence, Wandera claimed she could not establish that the boy was a minor on the first day they met.

She narrated to the court how they met and started dating; adding that looking at the physical appearance, she could not tell he was underage.

The Sexual Offences Act allows an accused to cite this as defence, especially when physical appearances look deceiving.

But on this occasion, the court found that the woman made no efforts to establish whether the person she was dating was actually an adult.

In court, Wandera further revealed that the boy, a boda boda operator, was also a drug abuser.

She indicated that the boy appeared young only when he was testifying in court.

But the magistrate dismissed the argument, saying according to sexual offences act, she should have shown the steps she took to establish the age of her ‘lover’.

“There was no evidence the complainant lied about his age and the accuser’s defense was disregarded based on her failure to prove what steps she took to establish whether the boy was underage,” said Ms Wambilyanga.




 

She added that the two were arrested twice and on those occasions asked to stop the relationship after the complainant’s mother raised the age-difference issue, but the woman ignored.

“The mother was not happy because the woman was older,” said the magistrate.

In her mitigation, Wandera asked for forgiveness, saying she has a son, a brother and her mother she was taking care of.

“I am the only person taking care of all of them. Please forgive me I will never repeat the offence,” she pleaded.

Published

COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has for the first time spoken about his relationship with KTN news anchor Mary Kilobi after their marriage came to light a week ago.

Speaking during an interview at Citizen Tv with Jeff Koinange on JKL, Atwoli revealed that he met Kilobi 13 years ago when she was 21 and vowed to marry her.

“When I met her about 13 years ago, that’s in 2005 in Kampala and she was at that time with Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) and I was in the company of my second wife whom I have released to go and do politics and she has taken over.

“At that particular time we talked and she was still young at around 21 years old and I told her when you mature even if it takes 1000 years I will marry you. After her stay in Uganda she came back to Kenya, got a job with KTN.

“And because of the nature of work I do, you need somebody to assist you, you want somebody to rush and get you something and it must be a person you trust. She is my assistant, she is my lover, she is my wife and she got to take care of me. I’m a stupid lover,” said the COTU boss.

Asked to comment about his wife Mary Kilobi, who was watching the show at home, Atwoli described the Kiswahili anchor as a nice lady who is taking good care of him.

“I tell her she is a nice lady, she is taking care of me, she is committed to our relationship and that’s all. But that does not mean I don’t respect my elder wife. She is a wonderful mama she has kept my family together and she is doing a commendable job,” added Francis Atwoli.

When asked about the age difference he responded, “There is no age limit between a man and a woman, everywhere in the world.’’

Atwoli is 36 years her senior.

“Na kazi unaweza? Bado unasoma katiba?” asked Jeff. Watch:

In a candid interview with the Nairobian, the pretty media personality revealed that they met while she was in Uganda where she was working as an intern with Uganda Broadcasting Corporation.

Atwoli was in the station for an interview and upon hearing of a Kenyan girl who was working there, he insisted on meeting her.

They exchanged numbers and in 2016 he won her heart.

‘’He proposed to me but I said no. But he insisted. He persistently stated that he was serious and would wait for even 1000 years for me to say ‘yes’ and marry him,’’ said Kilobi.

VIDEO: I have lost many friends because of bomoabomoa – President Kenyatta

Published

President Uhuru Kenyatta has reassured Kenyans he would not relent in his fight against impunity and rampant corruption and not even his friends would be spared in the ongoing crackdown on illegal properties erected on wetlands. The president disclosed he had lost many friends in the past few weeks due to the demolitions, but he was not bothered by it.

Addressing a congregation at the Faith Evangelistic Ministry in Karen, Nairobi, on Sunday, August 12, Uhuru advised Kenyans not to be afraid of losing friends because of doing the right thing in the eyes of God. “I have lost many friends. Many have called me asking ‘how can you be watching when all the destruction is going on?’ I say a time has come to fight impunity. Let us lose our friends and do what is right in the eyes of God. Let us create a society that respects and treasures hard work and integrity, a nation with a conscience,” he said.

Anglican priest ‘busted’ at city lodging with married woman dies

Published

on

Anglican priest, Reverend Elijah Githinji, fell prey to a similar gang that allegedly blackmailed Kirinyaga Deputy Governor Peter Ndambiri in 2014 and later died in India after suffering a sudden ailment said to have been triggered by the dehumanising ordeal that left hima at the mercy of his followers.

He was buried at his rural Kabaro home, Ndia, Kirinyaga West Sub-county the same Monday Ndambiri identified the third suspect.

Ndambiri who arrived at the burial after 6pm told mourners that he was late for Githinji’s funeral as he was held up at a police identification parade in Nairobi.

“Although our brother has left without justice having been served, those who set him up will certainly be punished since we believe they were the same ones who subjected me to the dehumanising condition after falling into their trap,” he said.

Mourners at Githinji’s funeral recalled how the gang allegedly busted him from a lodging in Nairobi where he was a priest with a married woman leading to a thorough beating from the ‘husband,’ but Githinji maintained his innocence until his death.
