Wage Dispute Made me Rape Her

Wundanyi, March 17, 2011- An 18-year-old house boy has told the court that he defiled a two-and-a-half-year old girl in Taita-Taveta County after a wage dispute with his employer.

Mchawa Meja pleaded with Wundanyi Resident Magistrate Mr. K. I. Orenge saying he had one parent and siblings who depended on him.

“I’m the sole bread winner in our family and I have chest complications,” he said.

He was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment.

The accused was found guilty of the offence and convicted after earlier denying that on Mach 19, last year at Kizoki Village in Werugha location, Wundanyi division he had carnal knowledge of the minor.

Mchawa faced also an alternative charge of unlawfully and indecently assaulting the girl by touching her private parts.

The girl’s mother Mary Gladys Mwakitele told the court that she became suspicious about the behaviour of the accused after she found him lying under the bed of her daughter.

Mwakitele told the court that the accused used to sleep in a different room at the time of the rape incident. “The accused could not explain what he was doing under the bed in the child’s room when I questioned him,” she said.

“I decided to take my daughter to the local health facility where she was examined and found to have been defiled,” the prosecution witness explained.

The matter was reported to Wundanyi police station and the accused was arrested.

In his ruling the magistrate said: “I have correctly considered the evidence presented by the prosecution and it was well corroborated.”
