A Juja High Court has sentenced a man to 50 years in prison for defiling and impregnating his 14-year-old daughter.

Amuza Kamulya, pleaded guilty to the offense after his daughter and his wife appeared in court to testify against him.

At first, the accused denied the offense and threatened to kill his daughter if she ever showed up in court to testify.

However, last month Kamulya changed his mind and pleaded guilty after the daughter and her mother appeared in court following a warrant of arrest against her to testify in the trial.

While convicting Kamulya, Justice Margaret Mutonyi described his actions as “monstrous and satanic.”

“The monstrous convict robbed his daughter of her self-esteem and betrayed her trust in him. His reckless, satanic, and savagery conduct, has left a mark on her that will never be erased from her mind and the damage is for a lifetime,” Justice Mutonyi ruled as reported by the Mirror.

The rule 

“The convict, in this case, being a biological father, who chose to abuse his daughter instead of protecting her, deserved to be sentenced to death by hanging but because he pleaded guilty, I am considering a lesser punishment of 50 years,”  the judge added.

The prosecution said the accused always moved around with his daughter while grazing, claiming he was protecting her from boys but instead took advantage of her and defiled her.

Further in her judgment, Justice Mutonyi observed that sexual violence against children has become rampant and that courts needed to send a strong signal to the perpetrators.

“Sexual violence against children by close family members is very rampant and leaves the victims shattered. In the instant case, the kind of conduct exhibited by the convict deserves retribution,” Justice Mutonyi observed as per the local publication.

“If he could abuse his own child, he would not hesitate to do it to any other child.”
