Mombasa, KENYA: A Mombasa law court has sentenced a man to five years imprisonment for sodomizing a mentally ill man.
Ibrahim Ramadhani was on Thursday found guilty of sodomizing a mentally ill man at Shelly beach in Likoni area within Mombasa County in October 2015.
The verdict was passed by Mombasa Chief Magistrate Susan Shitubi.
“Accused is guilty after four witnesses testified in court and there is no reasonable doubt,”she said.
The court however dismissed the evidence of the victim who was 29 years old, as he was found to be mentally ill and could not remember events vividly.
Before the court passed its ruling the accused had asked the court to forgive him claiming he is an orphan and that the case had also affected his health.
The magistrate delivered her ruling and asked him to appeal if he found the sentence not satisfying.
