A middle aged man was yesterday convicted to life imprisonment for defiling his five year old niece at her parent’s house at Kenyerere village, Sameta.
The Ogembo court heard that on October 8, 2011, Kefa Sibota, who was at the time living with the minor’s parents lured the girl to his room and defiled her but the girl’s mother found him committing the heinous crime.
She raised alarm and neighbors who came to help attacked Sibota with stones and blunt objects before frog matching him to a nearby police station.
The girl was taken to a health center in the area where she was treated and discharge. A P3 form was also filed in connection with the same.
Appearing before Ogembo resident magistrate, Sibota pleaded with the court for leniency but he was handed a life sentence and given 14 days to appeal his sentence.
