A pastor was jailed after he attempted to rape a 13-year-old girl, police in Kenya said.
Magistrate Carl Moeteke sentenced 38-year-old Pastor Ruben Okotie, to 6 months in prison after he was found guilty of three counts of conspiracy, attempted rape and illicit sexual act.
According to police, the 13-year-old girl who is from Nigeria, worked as a maid for the pastor and his wife.
One day, while his wife was visiting her sick parents in a nearby town, the girl went shopping for food. When the girl returned from the market, the pastor attempted to rape her, but she managed to get away from him.
One week later, while his wife was visiting her parents again, the pastor warned the child that she would lose her job if she did not comply with his demands.
He then dragged the victim into a bedroom and pushed a red candle into her private parts. The 13-year-old girl resisted the attempt by the pastor to rape her.
When the pastor’s wife returned home, the child told her about the incident and the woman called police.
Sgt. Promise Enebeli told the court that Okotie confessed to the crime during the interrogation. He must now serve six months in prison.
