A Kirinyaga County pastor who pleaded guilty to defiling and impregnating his two daughters has been sentenced to 140 years in jail.

The victims are aged 14 and 16 years.

Appearing before Baricho Senior Principal Magistrate Anthony Mwicigi, the offender was handed a 70-year jail term for sexually assaulting each of the girls.

Mwicigi further ruled that the sentence will run consecutively, this leaving the man with 140 years behind bars.

The accused aged 51 admitted the offense on January 5 and was remanded until Thursday, January 7.  

In his defense, the offender blamed the devil for his offenses and asked for forgiveness from his children and the court.

Senior Principal Magistrate Anthony Mwicigi said the pastor had been convicted on his own admissions of guilt and ordered that the judgment against the pastor be conducted on January 14, 2021.

According to the charge sheet, the suspect committed the first offence on diverse dates between 1st to 30th of June, 2019, and the second offence was committed between 1st to 31st of August, 2020.

Gichina was arrested in Mbeere South from his hideout after police early last month launched an operation to arrest him.

The first girl is pregnant with a 7-month old baby and the other a 5-month old baby.
