Emmanuel Mateka Malele/The Standard.
An elderly man on Monday tricked a woman into Nairobi/s City Park Forest before taking advantage of her.
More so, the man went ahead and stole the little money the woman had in her handbag.
He then asked the court not to jail him on the ground that the woman he had taken advantage of was not a minor, and that he was too old to be jailed.
“It is true I committed the offence. But, please don’t send me to jail because I would die in custody, given I’m elderly.
“The woman is an adult. That is why I haven’t thought twice about admitting guilt. I’m urging the court not to jail me because I am old," the old man told the court as reported by the Standard.
Kibera Principal Magistrate Derrick Kuto directed that the matter be mentioned on Friday, April 23.
The man is set to spend the night at Industrial Area Remand Prison.
Emmanuel Mateka Malele met the woman in the CBD, who asked him for any job leads, He, however, used the opportunity to trick her into a forest and chewed her by force.
He then took her Sh300 after the horrific act.
