A court based in Lamu on Tuesday slapped one Mr. Walladi
Musa with a jail term of 10 years. This is after the accused was found guilty
of sexually molesting an eight-year-old girl.
Magistrate Allan Temba got to know how the accused tricked the minor with
Sh50 shortly after leaving the church, before sexually abusing her in Lamu
town, Mkomani area on October 14, 2018.
Mr. Musa Walladi denied the charges against him, and instead, accused how some characters were out to fix him.
"I am not in any way involved and I don't even know the
girl I am accused of defiling at my carpentry workshop. That's impossible since
the workshop is a public place where I would have easily been caught. I even
went to the girl's family to discuss the matter. I am innocent, I think some
people persuaded the family to have me arrested," stated Mr. Walladi.
Although, Mr. Walladi's explanations and claims seemingly
fell on deaf ears, after magistrate Allan Temba stated his satisfaction after
several witnesses among them police and medics confirmed that the minor got

Magistrate Allan Temba added that he was convinced beyond
doubts that the accused committed the act, thereby sentencing him under section
215 of the Criminal Act.
However, he [Mr. Temba] told the accused that he had up to
14 days, in case he wished to appeal against his sentencing.
