A pastor was found guilty of defiling, impregating and brutally killing a schoolgirl in Kitale.
Charles Nyachwara, formerly of the Pentecostal Assemblies of God, murdered the pregnant 17-year-old Form Four student in July 2011.
Justice Hillary Chemitei said evidence presented before court proved the pastor killed the minor to protect his image.
“I have heard the litigation by both prosecution and defense sides. What is evident is the fact that the minor suffered a brutal death in your hands. You have a right to appeal,” he said.
Nyachwara who was pastoring Yuya PAG Church in Cherangany murdered Scolastica Mbihi, a student at Yuya Secondary School, while she was five months pregnant from a year-old relationship.
She was a Sunday school teacher at the church Nyachwara was heading.
The court heard the girl had confessed to her parents the clergyman had impregnated her.
The matter was reported to the police who arrested and arraigned the pastor at Kitale law courts charged with defilement. He was released on bond.
