In Kenya, a 43 years old man who is an HIV-Positive victim has been sentenced to life imprisonment for raping an 11 years old girl after long trial.
The 43 years old rapist known as Anthony Saiso has recently shown up before the Milimani Law court in Nairobi where the magistrate sentenced him to serve till he died in prison for the charge of defilation at Kabiko Estate in Ngong , kajiado county on 25th of June, 2016.
When the rapist was in the court to receive both judgement and punishment, he said crazily to the magistrate, Hellen Onkwani to bring the so-called defiled girl out and test her for HIV maybe she is also affected with the virus just like him. He brought this up to face his face of the charges laid before him but to no avail.
- “I urge this court to order that the complainant is examined to establish her status because I am HIV positive so that she can be put on antiretrovirals before it is too late.”
The Magistrate, ms Hellen Onkwani ordered that Saiso will need to be isolated from the community since he has proved himself to be “dangerous”, the magistrate continued that girls and women need to be secured from dangerous and felonious people like saiso who allegedly attacked and raped the 11-years-old girl on her way home from where she went to fetch water.
The magistrate said adults should take good care and protect the teenagers and kids from Soiso-alike who are always hungry to destroy anybody’s life without any hesitation or consideration. Ms Onkwani also warned the 11-years-old girl who was raped not to expose or say anything pertaining to her misfortune to anybody.
Saiso will be put under severe punishment as first offender under serious custodial sentence. The raped girl has been examined and result shows the severe injuries inflicted on her by Saiso.
Ms Hellen Onkwani said;
- “The offense you committed is serious and you need a stiff penalty for others who share habits like you to learn a lesson. Courts have a duty to protect those who vulnerable in the society.”
Antony Saiso has 14 days to appeal
against the sentence.
