A local businessman Geoffrey Onyango Odhiambo, 36, who assaulted a 16-year-old schoolboy for being in a relationship with his 14-year-old daughter has been fined Sh20,000 after he pleaded guilty to the offense.


Geoffrey Onyango Odhiambo will subserve a three-month jail term for causing bodily injuries to his neighbour’s son if he fails to pay the fine.


The event occurred after the accused found out that the Form Three student had been dating his daughter for more than a year.


Odhiambo was given the sentence by Senior Resident Magistrate Renee Kitangwa of the Kibera Law Courts after he confessed to attacking the minor in 

Kawangware, Nairobi, on August 7.


The businessman is said to have stepped into his neighbour’s house in the company of his daughter while waving a belt.


He dared the teenager, who shielded himself insisting that he had been seduced by the man’s daughter. 


He even produced love letters from the girl, only for Mr Odhiambo to angrily attack him.


The teenager was later taken to hospital for treatment before the matter was reported to the police.
