“They are just two and we began talking after I got here because I was bored and new to the country.


“I always asked if their mothers were at home to be sure of the kind of messages I send to them,” he added.

Kenneth sent the victims distressing text messages including unrequested obscene pictures, requested some of their home addresses and invited them to his home for sex.

The accused who pleaded for mercy and promised to stop the act blamed the crime on temptation from the devil. 

He was afterwards handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution.
