Edda Wakesho, a 21-year-old Kenyan woman who filmed herself defiling a 4-year-old boy and posted it online, has been sentenced to life in prison.
The 21-year-old, who was a house help in Kiembeni Estate, Mombasa, filmed herself engaging in the act with a minor and later shared it on a pornographic site to make money.
She was slammed with a life sentence for defiling the boy and a further 10 years for filming the act on Wednesday, March 2, by the Senior Resident Magistrate Florence Macharia.
According to the investigating officer, the accused is part of a child pornography syndicate that collaborates with a rogue house to abuse children and film the acts.
The woman, in her defence, said that she innocently accepted a friend request from Facebook and was introduced to a page where people post nude photos and videos. She said that she was recruited into the syndicate with the promise of being paid lots of money.
The minor’s mother got a video recording of the heinous deed via a foreign cellphone number, according to the court.
