Lamu Principal magistrate Sitati Temba, sitting in Makindu law courts, has jailed three men to life for defiling minors.

Daniel Kahindi (21) from Nzavoni, Boniface Maundu (50) from Kasasule village in Kibwezi and Mutunga Munywoki (27) from Kalawa in Nzaui sub-county will spend the rest of their lives in prison for defiling minors.

Temba, while giving the judgment, said the accused were not remorseful for their actions and that such cases are rampant in the area.
