Chief magistrate Carl Moeteke, who sentenced the accused, said he was found guilty with overwhelmed evidence in a three counts of conspiracy, attempted rape and illicit sexual act. Moeteke therefore sentenced the accused to six months without option of fine to serve as deterrent to others.
Reports say Pastor Okotie on the 22nd day of February 2016 in Kwale town seduced his housemaid with a red candle after his wife had gone to visit her sick parents in a neighbouring community.
The housemaid, Helen, 13 years old and an indigene of Akwa Ibom State, was said to have resisted the attempt but he threatened to eject her from his house if she failed to comply. A week after, the pastor pounced on the maid and pushed a red candle into her private part after forcing her into his bedroom.
He was reportedly arrested in Kwale when his wife reported the maid’s complaints to the police.
