A 32-year old man will spend the rest of his 94 years in jail for raping his own grandmother.

A Kangema court found Samuel Thiong’o Mbaria guilty of raping his granny aged 94 years on the night of October 11, 2016 at Gacharageini village of Murang’a County.

Senior Resident Magistrate Dennis Kivuti said that the court was satisfied with evidence presented before the court which evidently revealed that Thiong’o committed the heinous act at around 7.30pm barely an hour after defiling the minor.

The sentence did not come as a surprise to the accused as he was convicted to a life imprisonment by a local magistrate’s court on August 15 2017, for defiling a two and half year’s girl.

While reading his judgment, Kivuti reading said the complainant was unable to testify as she was traumatised after the incident and a medical report had indicated she had problem of forgetting past things.

The first witness, a Form-2 grandson to the complainant told the court that on the material day, he heard screams from her grandmother’s as he was coming from their farm. He ran to answer the distress call only to find the house locked from inside.

When he peeped through a window, he saw the accused lying on his grandmother. The grandmother, the witness told the court, was crying for help. He raised alarm to alert his parents and neighbours.  

The first person to arrive at the scene was the boy’s mother who in the case was the second witness.

The student’s mother with help of other neighbours who arrived after short period managed to break into the house to find the accused and the granny naked.

The middle aged lady narrated how her mother they found her mother unconscious after the sexual act.

Attempts to lynch the accused by angry residents were thwarted by the local assistant chief who arrived at the compound almost immediately accompanied by a police officer.
