A Tanzanian national has been jailed for 15 years after he was found guilty of defiling a 17-year-old girl in Homa Bay County three years ago.

Zuberi Bado Isa appeared before Ndhiwa Principal Magistrate Mary Ochieng’ where he faced two counts.

In the first count, the 24-year-old foreigner was accused of defilement contrary to the Sexual Offences Act of 2006.

The accused admitted the charge of being in Kenya illegally but denied defiling the minor.

A medical report from Dr Nelson Waka of Ndhiwa sub-county hospital revealed that the girl was defiled.

The accused was given 14 days to appeal.
