Judith Wandera, a 24-year-old Kenyan lady, is in prison after being found guilty of defiling a 16-year-old boy in court.
The victim accused Wandera of defiling him many times, reports Standard Media.
Nyakundi Mukaya, a prosecutor, revealed medical evidence from specimen collected from the duo, that confirmed that the woman and the schoolboy were having an intimate affair.
He stated that the underage boy had been staying with the accused for more than four months. He added that as a result of the affair, the schoolboy had dropped out of school and moved in with the accused before he was rescued by police officers.
“The boy was rescued on July 7, 2017, and the accused was arrested by police officers,” said Mukaya. After the rescue, he said, the boy was taken to a correctional facility before he was released back to his parents.
Parents of the boy testified how their son had stopped taking school seriously after he met the woman and they sought the intervention of the police after the boy started living with her.
Wandera, in defence, claimed that she not aware that the boy was underage, she told them that he was a drug addict by the time they met. “We met at a drinking joint one evening of April 2016 in Kondele where he even offered to buy me drinks.
We exchanged phone contacts and started dating,” Wandera added that she could not establish the age of the boy because he was also a boda boda operator (commercial motorcycle rider) and only appeared “young when he came to testify.”
“He had dreadlocks when we met and only appeared young after his dreadlocks were shaved before he was brought to court to testify,” said Wandera in her defence.
