A 60 year-old pastor has been sentenced for life by a Makadara court for defiling and impregnating his 16 year-old daughter.
Principal Magistrate Eveline Olwande imprisoned Peter Wambua after finding him guilty of the offence committed at Njiru in 2012.
He was also found guilty for indecently touching his daughter.
The magistrate said, in her judgment, that the prosecution proved without doubt that the suspect had committed the offence.
The minor testified how her father had confronted her and told her that he had a dream she had been sleeping with another man. The pastor wanted to prove she was still a virgin by sleeping with her. The minor told the court that after failing to convince her father she was still a virgin, he forcefully committed the act when her mother was not home. After that she was defiled more than 20 times which led to her pregnancy.
After Wambua discovered his daughter was pregnant, he threatened to kill her if she disclosed the matter to anyone.
“Pastor” Wambua will now serve a life sentence.
