The man’s lawyer has said that he plans to lodge an appeal.
The girl was forced to have full intercourse with the man, as well oral sex. The abuse occurred on numerous occasions over a two-year period. During the same period the girl worked for just 4 euro a month, all of which she gave to her month.
The scene of the abuse was a block of flats in a well-to-do area of the town of Mtwapa, around 20 kilometers from Mombasa. Most of the flats in the block are owned by retired Europeans.
The Belgian also took nude photographs of the girl. He was arrested in July and has been free on bail ever since.
