He added that the defendant admitted that he slept with the girl several times, resulting in a pregnancy and the birth of a baby girl.

The judge held further that although the defendant promised to marry her, the offence had been committed already and the law must take its course.

Kekemeke ruled that count two was not relevant and convicted the defendant on count one, which contravened section 31 (1)of the Child’s Right Act.
