A middle-aged man will spend 40 years behind bars after being found guilty of rape.
Christopher Ongeri from Kisii raped a 35-year-old woman living with disability, the Court heard.
The prosecutor – Charles Mogeni- told Kisii Senior Resident Magistrate Margaret Nafula that Ongeri committed the crime on November 10, 2018, at Nyabite Sub-location in Nyamache Sub-county, Kisii County.
The accused is said to have raped the woman multiple times, a report that was collaborated by a doctor at the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital where the victim was taken for a medical exam.
“The accused Christopher Ongeri is said to have raped the vulnerable woman multiple times before neighbours reported the matter leading to his arrest. A medical report has confirmed that he is the one who raped her,” Mogeni submitted in court.
The suspect denied the charges.
Resident Magistrate Margaret Nafula said the case had been proved beyond doubt. She said Ongeri had been found guilty of raping the woman whose name has been withheld for legal reasons, adding that he will now face a 40-year jail term.
Ongeri was given seven days to appeal the ruling.
