SHOCKING!! Estranged Wife frames Husband With Defilement Over Land Dispute

A middle-aged man who was sentenced to life imprisonment after he was  framed by his estranged with using their own  daughters as tool  for defilement can now receive justice after they have finally revealed the truth 8-years after.
Reports say the two daughters filed submissions at the Machakos High Court to counter their original testimonies.
 The convict identified as Julius Wambua Musyoki was thrown behind bars after he was found guilty of defilement in January 2012.
Years after the said victim confessed that she was instructed by her mother to frame the suspect.
The victim said as at the time of the alleged incident , her mother and father  engaged in serious argument  over the ownership of a parcel of land, out of which the mother vowed to teach the man a lesson.
The victim’s mother allegedly, thereafter, coached her daughter on what to say to make her defilement story believable.
The victim who is the youngest amongst the two said she   was 10 years old in 2011 as the alleged defilement happened.
The victim’s elder sister had told the court that she saw her dad ‘s*xually abusing’ her younger sister.
The two key witnesses’ testimonies condemned Wambua to life in jail.
In her new affidavit filed at the Machakos High Court, the victim said her mother had bribed two medical practitioners to write a false report indicating her daughter had been defiled.
“I was too young to understand the power of my testimony then. I only came to understand the consequences of my fabricated statement years later, when my dad had already served several years in jail,” said the victim in her affidavit.
In March 2019, Wambua filed an appeal after his daughter confessed to framing him in the defilement case.
Wambua’s application to introduce his daughter’s recanted statement as evidence in his appeal was, however, dismissed by the Court of Appeal in May 2019.
A three-judge bench comprising of William Ouko, Wanjoru Karanja and Jamila Mohamed declined the application by Wambua on the basis that the request was time-barred, and that the court-set timelines for filing and producing evidence had already lapsed.
In his appeal, Wambua through his advocates, Cyrus Maweu and Mike Mwema, argued that that the defilement victim, who was the Prosecution’s key witness, and is Wambua’s daughter, recanted her evidence, hence Wambua wanted the court to consider the change of events.
Wambua, through his advocates, argued that the court convicted him despite the discrepancy on the doctor’s report.
The court heard that the medical examination date to ascertain defilement of the then-10-year-old girl preceded the date of the defilement.
