A man in Nairobi has been sentenced to 30 years in jail after he was found guilty of sodomising another man.
In the case presented before Kibera Senior Principal Magistrate Monica Maroro, Kisilu Muindi was charged after sufficient evidence proved that he sodomized the victim aged 28.
The court heard that Muindi assaulted his victim after he invaded a kiosk where he (the victim) was resting on July 8, 2021.
At the time of the incident which occurred at Kabiria in Dagoretti, Nairobi, Muindi cut the victim's leg using a Panga before tying his hands with a piece of cloth and raping him.
The victim named PQ (Not his real name) testified that he was threatened by his perpetrator moments after he committed the distasteful act.
“He told me to cooperate after cutting my leg inflicting me with serious injuries. After that, he told me that he was going to kill me if I refused to do as he requested,
“He raped me from behind and left me bleeding. He issued me with threats by saying that he was in a position to call the mob to kill me if I cried out for help,” he stated.
PQ was rescued by a good samaritan who bumped into him at the scene of crime.
The accused however denied the allegations defending that he did not commit the offence.
Issuing the verdict, Justice Maroro affirmed that the evidence produced by the victim prove that the accused had committed the offence.
“Having considered both the defence and the accused person’s mitigation, I sentence him to 30 years in jail for the offence committed and he has 14 days to appeal if he wishes to do so.” Maroro ruled.
