Pastor gets life sentence for defiling daughter

A 60-year old pastor has been sentenced to life imprisonment by a Nairobi Court after being found guilty of defiling his daughter.

The court was told that Peter Wambua sexually assaulted his 16 year old daughter and impregnated her in 2012 in Njiru, Nairobi.

The complainant recounted how her father raped her after she failed to prove to him that she was still a virgin.

She further disclosed that on the first occasion, he came into her room and told her that he had a dream she was sleeping with another man.

The accused wanted to be convinced that his daughter was still a virgin by sleeping with her, the court was told.

The man of cloth is said to have subsequently raped the minor more than 20 times and eventually impregnated her.


According to the minor, Mr Wambua threatened to kill her if she revealed to anyone that she was pregnant.

However, the minor later lost the pregnancy. A medical report was presented in court to prove the claim.

While sentencing the accused, Makadara Principal Magistrate Eveline Olwande said the prosecution proved beyond doubt that the accused committed the offence.

Olwande however said that in as much as the police did not bring a P3 form and also did not appear to testify in court, she considered the testimony of the minor’s mother sufficient.

The magistrate, after studying additional evidence presented in the case, said she believed the suspect was guilty of the charges.
