A Chief was found guilty of defiling a youngster and given a 40-year prison sentence by the High Court in Kabarnet, Baringo County, on Friday.

Administrator of the Kasaka sub-location Thomas Chesang, 47, was charged with defiling the 14-year-old girl on various dates between February and August 2021.

He was charged with a second offense of violating Section 11 (1) of the Sexual Act Number 3 of 2006 by engaging in an indecent act with a child.

Chesang was found guilty guilty of a felony after being found guilty of defiling and impregnating a Class Seven girl, according to Senior Resident Magistrate Caroline Ateya.

The administrator forced the girl to get an abortion before hiding her in West Pokot, denying her the chance to attend school, according to testimony given in court.

Magistrate Ateya jailed the Chief when making the decision, claiming that the punishment will act as a warning to others.

The magistrate added that the minor girl is weak and was psychologically damaged as a result of the horrible incident.
