An Akorino sect adherent who has pleaded guilty of defiling his two daughters will remain in police custody until next Thursday when his case will be further mentioned.

John Gichira  is now awaiting sentencing by a Baricho court after on his own plea of guilty admitted committing incest with his two teenage daughters .

One of the daughters has since given birth to a seven month old baby while the other one is five months pregnant.

Gichira also confirmed he was aged 45 years and not 51 as  earlier on reported by the police .

When asked by the local Senior Principal Magistrate  Antony Mwicigi upon conviction why he committed the offence  blamed the devil as the one who misled him .

“Am seeking for forgiveness  from his daughters and  as well the court promising never to commit such an offence again though  everyone makes mistakes ,”he told the court.

This morning the magistrate ordered that the ‘pastor’ be remanded at the Sagana police station until next Thursday for a further mention of his case to enable  a probation officer compile  a victim’s impact assessment  report   before passing his judgment.

Gichira faced two counts of incest with the  first one which stated that on diverse days in June 2019 he defiled and impregnated his 16 year old daughter who later gave birth to his seven month old baby now.

A second  count stated  that on diverse days in August 2020 he defiled and impregnated his 14 year  old daughter who is now five months pregnant.

When the matter was reported to the police in December last year Gichira went into hiding only to be busted from his hideout in Mbeere South Sub-County by police and arrested  and later charged with the two  incest   counts .
