A 40-year-old man has been sentenced to 20 years in jail for sexually assaulting and threatening to kill his sister in Njoguri Village, Embu County.
The accused was charged with raping his 57-year-old sister who is mentally ill at their home on 3rd August 2020.
The court found that the prosecution had proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused committed the assault after considering witness testimony from six individuals and the doctor’s report proving that the victim was mentally ill at the time of her attack.
Nyaga faced an additional charge of threatening to kill her sister if she reported the act to anyone.
He will be serving his sentence at Embu prison.
