A DNA test ordered by a Mwingi court in Kenya has confirmed that a pastor accused of defiling a 17-year-old girl in a church impregnated the victim.
The test results showed that Pastor Steve Masila impregnated the Standard Seven pupil, who hails from Nguutani ward, on August 12, 2017.
Mwingi senior resident magistrate Grace Kirugumi on Tuesday, September 11, granted the suspect a Sh200,000 bond with a surety of the same amount.
The Arising Christian Ministries pastor appeared before the magistrate at the Mwingi law court for the release of the DNA result.
Masila is accused of defiling the minor as she was mopping the church in preparation for a Sunday’s service on the fateful Saturday.
According to the victim, Pastor Steven found her washing the church on that fateful Saturday evening and defiled her warning her not to tell anyone, else he would harm her.
“Pastor Steven found me mopping the church and raped me warning me not to tell anyone including my mom,” said the victim.
The court had heard that Masila, after committing the offence, threatened the minor not to disclose the matter to anyone.
The minor opened up to her mother with information that it was the pastor who had defiled and impregnated her.
The mother (pictured) said when they told the Pastor about the newborn he denied hurling insults at her.
‘He insulted me terming me a bad mother as opposed to what he thought if i could destroy his reputation alleging he is the dad to my grand daughter. He further went on saying to take him where we we can, ‘ the poverty stricken widow narrated in tears.
Masila upon being asked he started threatening the mother that they will all die and the kid will also die since they are accusing a man of God.
The pastor has denied the charges and was remanded at Waita GK prison until he settles the bond. The hearing will be on September 18.
Meanwhile, it was gathered that on July 16,2018, residents of Nzawa village evicted Pastor Steven after the news made headlines last.
Apart from the girl he raped and impregnated, he is said to have hooked several other girls from area to the dismay of the villagers.
According to the area residents the rogue pastor has been insulting them for a while, but worsened it by threatening them that they will be dying one after the other for falsefully accusing him of tasting school going children’s forbidden fruit.
Simon Mutua, a resident told journalists that they took the law into their hands and evicted the son of God from Nzawa village for this served him better.
‘This self proclaimed pastor has to leave our community now for we cannot continue living with a rapist in the name of serving God,’ another bitter resident added.
