A court in Nairobi has jailed for 100 years a children’s home director for defiling four boys aged between five and nine years.

Stephen Nzuki, 29, is said to have defiled the boys at the facility in Utawala Estate on diverse dates between 2010 and 2016.

The man who was entrusted to take care of the minors, the court was told, used to take the boys to his house, offer them food and drinks and share with them some “Bible” verses before sexually abusing them.

Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Zainab Abdul said the suspect misquoted the scriptures to hoodwink the boys into believing that his evil acts were allowed in the Bible.

The victims, who positively identified the perpetrator in court, earlier asked the court to hand the suspect a harsh sentence.

While delivering the judgment, Ms Abdul said the sentence would deter other people from committing such a crime.
