A renowned chief in Wajir has been arrested and jailed for 20 years following a defilement. Assault cases have been on the rise lately in Kenya. The victims of these heinous acts have reported being mostly women, worse is that they are minors.
While adults are expected to be protecting the children as their own, most take leverage of their position and harassed minors like in the case in Wajir.
According to the report shared, Chief Kalimoi Shale was arrested after sharing explicit photos of an aan18-year-old girl when she refused to be abused further. Chief Kalimoi after being found guilty of the assaults and taken to the court tried using his chief position to solve the matter without going to court, an out-of-court deal.
Unfortunately, he wasn't lucky as police and the victim demanded justice after he was found guilty of raping the girl on not just one but multiple occasions. Additionally, he was found guilty of sharing the photos through his social media accounts with the public.
The court offered Ksh 500k as a compensation fund to the innocent girl while the chief bagged 40 years in prison for three criminal acts.
