Mombasa, KENYA: A Mombasa law court on Friday sentenced a 52 year old madrasa teacher for life imprisonment for sodomizing a 9-yr-old boy.
Yusuf ahmed yusuf was found guilty of sodomizing the child at Changamwe area within Mombasa County in march 2015.
This verdict was passed by Mombasa principal Magistrate Richard Odenyo.
Mr. Odenyo said the accused is guilty after the witnesses gave evidence in court and it became clear that the victim was sodomized by the person he knew as his madrasa teacher.
According to the victim’s evidence the accused requested pupils to go and play outside before he took him into a toilet and committed the offence.
An eye witness informed court that he found the accused in a toilet with a boy and suspected something was wrong.
On moving closer he was shocked to see the accused wearing a condom in his private parts.
The magistrate said the evidence was used by the court as true since the victim knew the accused as his teacher and he could not make false allegations.
