A house help will spend two years in jail for failing to protect her employer’s nine-year-old daughter from being defiled.
The girl was defiled by the house help’s boyfriend.
Justice Mary Kasango of the High Court in Nanyuki dismissed the woman’s appeal in which she was seeking a non-custodial sentence.
The judge said the woman, who is a mother of four, needs to be in custody to know that her behaviour was wrong.
Justice Kasango added that the woman, named DKJ to protect the child, also needs to learn that her conduct cannot be tolerated or approved by society.
