This is all in line with the novel Coronavirus pandemic that made President Uhuru Kenyatta to order the closure of all learning institutions on March 18th. To date, they have not been reopened.

Through the Nation Media, Magistrate Obara has said," “The accused did not offer any mitigation. That alone shows that he is not even remorseful for what he did. I take judicial notice of the rise of sexual offence cases especially during the current Covid-19 pandemic. Offenders are taking advantage of children who are at home as schools remain closed. In order to deter other would-be offenders, the accused is hereby sentenced to life imprisonment."
