A British pensioner has been convicted for sexually abusing children in Kenya.
Keith Morris, 72, was tried in a British court following an investigation by United Kingdom’s National Crime Agency (NCA) and Kenyan authorities.
He was convicted of nine counts of child abuse in the Kilifi child sex case.
“NCA worked in partnership with the Kenya’s National Police Service to investigate 72-year-old Keith Morris, after another British national staying in Kenya reported his inappropriate behaviour with children,” said a statement by the British High Commission in Nairobi.
It added: “He befriended vulnerable families in Kenya, and then abused their children. He has been convicted of nine child abuse offences in the UK, demonstrating that there is no escaping justice.”
He will be sentenced at Leeds Crown Court on July 17 this year.
