A British citizen Keith Morris has been sentenced to 17 years imprisonment for sexual offenses he committed while on holiday in Kenya.
Reports from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (D.C.I) and the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Protection Unit and the National Crime Agency (NCA) of the United Kingdom revealed that the Briton lured the minors by giving money and gifts to their families.
“Mr Keith Morris, a British national has been sentenced to 17years for the sexual offenses he committed whilst on holiday in Kenya and 18 months consecutive for the attempt to pervert the course of Justice,” the office of the DCI stated.
He is said to have sexually assaulted two underage girls after taking them to a hotel. Their parents did not question the whereabouts of the children as he had been taking them for day trips for the past 20 years.
Investigations were launched after guests at the hotel raised concerns prompting the DCI and the Kenya child Protection unit to take up the matter.
He had been gifting parents from the village with household goods, clothing, medical treatment and paying for their children’s education.
