There seems to be some ray of light at the end of the tunnel after all for a man who was in 2011 sentenced to life imprisonment upon conviction of defiling his biological daughter.

There is a new twist however as the High Court has ordered for the retrial of Julius Musyoki Wambua whose story was done by Lulu Hassan and aired by Citizen TV titled Barnamiji Gerezani.

In the story, the daughter confessed of having been coached by her mother to falsely testify against her father and land him in prison.

Wambua later challenged his conviction and sentencing, but the appeal did not see the end of the day as it was dismissed by the Court of Appeal.

High Court Judge Justice George Odunga on Wednesday allowed the retrial of Wambua after a submission by the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights who stated that the accused’s daughter who now lives in Tanzania’s capital Dar es Salaam had admitted to false testimony.
