We jailed LYDIA OCHIENG because she defiled a 13 year old boy and infected him with HIV - DPP NOORDIN HAJI says

Tuesday January 29, 2019 - The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Noordin Haji, has dismissed Lydia Achieng's story of being wrongfully sentenced to 10 years in jail over false allegations of defiling a 13-year-old boy.

In an interview with Inooro TV last year, Ochieng said she was in prison for 10 years for a crime she didn’t commit.

An emotional Achieng’ said that she had not committed any sexual offence against a teenage boy as alleged and that all her youth had been spent languishing in Lang’ata Women’s Prison.

To establish the truth, Inooro TV went to the DPP’s office for clarification.

In a statement on Tuesday, the DPP said Lydia was lawfully convicted and she lied to the media house.

The DPP said Lydia Achieng used to visit the house of the child between the months of August and September. She had sex with the victim three times during this period.

Four witnesses including the mother of the 13 year old boy testified against Achieng’.

The State Counsel said that the appellant was supposed to be charged with defilement but the investigations failed to produce adequate evidence for the charge of defilement.

During the appeal, the State Counsel had insinuated that Lydia, who was HIV positive, deliberately infected the victim with the deadly virus.
