After being found guilty of sodomising another man, a Nairobi court sentenced a defendant by the name of Kisilu Muindi to 30 years in prison.
The victim, who was sleeping on July 8, 2021, was attacked by Muindi after the victim broke into a kiosk in Kabiria in Dagoretti, Nairobi.
Muindi raped the victim after cutting his leg with a cutlass, tying his hands with a piece of cloth, and performing the act.
PQ (Not his real name) the victim claimed that the offender threatened him shortly after the repulsive conduct was perpetrated.
“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.”
A good Samaritan who happened to run into PQ at the scene of the crime saved him. However, the accused refuted the accusations, claiming that he did not conduct the crime.
In his decision, Justice Maroro affirmed that the victim’s testimony establishes the accused’s guilt of the crime.
“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.”
