Man fined K5,000 for impregnating a girl

A man who denied impregnating a girl because he used a condom when he made love to her has been fined K5,000 by a local court after it threw out his claim.

This is in a matter in which Agnes Kampansa, 20, of George compound was testifying against her lover Isaac Kakoma,19, aftet he refused impregnating her.

Kakoma has been sued by Kampasa’s uncle Sunday Chola who was demanding compensation.

Chola told Senior Court Magistrate Lewis Mumba sitting with Magistrate Pauline Newa at Matero Local Court that when he called Kakoma over the matter he refused to come.

He explained that his family  took Kampansa to Kakoma but was surprised that at about 22.00 hours the same day two women brought her back and suggested another meeting to resolve the matter.

Chola said Kakoma’s mother argued that her son was not capable of impregnating a woman because he was still very young. But Kampasa maintained that Kakoma was responsible for her pregnancy.

In defence, Kakoma said that they made love on June 3, for the first time and was suprised that a month later Kampansa told him that she was three months pregnant and that her parents wanted to see him.

Asked by the court how many times he made love to Kampansa, Kakoma said that they slept together on four occassions and that twice he used condoms.

Kampansa however denied that Kakoma ever used condons, adding that they made love in unfinished house on four occasions without the use of condoms.

She explained that when she told Kakoma about the pregnancy he admitted responsibility.

“We knew each other in April  and we have been making love since then up to May,” she said.

In submission, Chola said that he wanted the court to help him over the issue.

Passing judgment, Magistrate Mumba said that it was evident that Kakoma was the one who impregnated Kampansa because what he said is exactly what the girl told the court.

Magistrate Mumba said that Kakoma admitted that they made love four times but only on  two occasssons they used condoms while Kampansa denied use of condoms.

He said Kampansa was not a mad girl to pick out Kakoma when there were many males in George compound.

He ordered Kakoma to compensate Chola with K5,000 with initial payment of K500 followed by monthly installments of K300.
