Man Jailed⛓ 5⃣ Years for Rape Freed After Girl Admits Lie😯

A pupil’s lie to a teacher to escape punishment for being late landed her uncle a five-year jail term for “defilement”.
The Standard Seven pupil reported to school late, sometime in May 2014, and, to avoid being punished, she told the teacher her uncle had defiled her.
The teacher reported the matter to the police.
The uncle would later be charged with defilement, and after a four-month trial, he was imprisoned for 20 years.
AJC was jailed on September 12, 2014, following the testimony by the victim, named CSS.
Four years later, the girl who is now 18, confessed to her mother and also wrote to the court that she fabricated lies against her uncle.
“I testified in court and said that I would tell the truth. I was untruthful because I feared. I had been late in school and when I was asked where I was, I told a lie. If I had told the truth, I would have been beaten. It was the teacher who took the matter to the police. When I heard that A had been sentenced to 20 years, I felt very bad and that is why I called my mother. AJC has never defiled me,” her letter seen by The Standard read in part.
AJC had paid the family a visit and had stayed for one day.
High Court judge Edward Muriithi ordered that CSS be punished for telling lies. Justice Muriithi, however, left the matter up to Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji.
