Shocking! Man arrested for defiling and infecting daughter with HIV: His reason will shock youAfter being arrested and arraigned in court for defiling his 15-year old daughter and infecting her with HIV, a 45-year-old man was sentenced to life in prison.
The convict, who lives with his daughter in Muthara village in Tigania East, Meru County, Kenya, is said to have dragged her to the farm multiple times and defiled her.
The victim attempted to flee to a nearby homestead, where she was apprehended and transferred to Muthara Police Station.
The youngster refuses to accompany her father home after her release.
She told the investigators that her father had defiled her on several occasions and that her professors, whom she had informed, had declined to do action.
When the officer examined the man’s clinic card, he learned that he had signed up to get anti-retroviral medications.
The dad and his daughter both tested positive for HIV.
The defendant, who nonchalantly acknowledged defiling his daughter to ‘ease her sexual yearning,’ also stated that he did so because he did not want to die alone and leave the youngster to suffer.
The child described how her father would wake her up at night and drag her to the farm where he defiled her in her testimony.
Celestine Matere, the Principal Prosecution Counsel, said the offence was significant since it had harmed the girl’s future.
While the father later claimed that the girl and her mother had set him up since he had married a second wife, Tigania court Principal Magistrate Paul Wechuli said he was sure that the 45-year-old man had committed incest and knowingly infected the minor with HIV.
Mr Wechuli believed the man had betrayed his daughter’s confidence and hence deserved the greatest penalty.
He had 14 days to file an appeal.
