Inside The Battle For The Control Of Children’s Home Millions, Convict Explains Why Ex-Girlfriend Fixed Him In Defilement Case



Stephen Nzuki Mutisya in the dock at the Milimani Law Cours in Nairobi.

Before he was jailed for 100 years for defilement, Stephen Nzuki Mutisya was the director of Save the Children Reconciliation Education and Assistant Mission (Scream), which is based in the Mihago area of Kayole, Nairobi county, a position that he’s now blaming for his tribulation.

While appearing before Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Bernard Ochoi to acquit him on all the defilement charges involving underage boys, Mr. Mutisya has told the court that his three-month girlfriend Bridgit Dernendtte Bridgit, a Swiss national, masterminded the charges. He’s ponying fingers at the girlfriend for having fabricated the allegations and convinced the young boys to testify against him.

Mr. Mutisya, 30, maintains that he’s innocent and that he couldn’t have defiled the boys out under his care.

He accused Bridgit of hatching a plot to ensure he rots in jail and claimed the children were coached to give false testimonies against him, with the promise of studying in good schools.


He told the court amid tears that Bridgit had fixed him in order to take control of the management of the Kayole-based children’s home.

“I am in this predicament because of my fallout with my former girlfriend, Bridgit, who roped in the International Justice Mission (IJM) to frustrate me and ensure l rot in jail, to take over Scream,” he told the court.

He told Magistrate Ochoi that the woman vowed to ensure he was sentenced to a long term in prison on false charges of defiling the children.

“After soul-searching, the boys have since returned to the police to withdraw the lies saying they cannot live with the guilt of fixing their former mentor and helper,” Mr Mutisya stated.

He says his arrest came after a workshop by IJM and he was being sacrificed to be a case study.


“Police arrested me as a case study after their three-month training on curbing serious crimes and rights violations against women and children. I am a victim of both IJM and Bridgit,” he said.

Sex scandals 

In his defense, Mr. Mutisya has opened a can of worms in what would be a long history of child sexual exploitation in the care home.

He claims his breakup with Bridgit came after realizing she was having an illicit affair with a 16-year old boy at the childrens home. He alleges to have caught them in the act following a tip-off from other children in the facility.

It is upon confrontation that she owned up, in her defense, her home country Switzerland, 16-year olds are mature enough to decide on whom to have sexual relations with.


In Kenya, the legal age for sex is 18.

Mr. Mutisya said before their breakup, he was living with Bridgit at their palatial home in Utawala.

He added that they parted ways also because he was dating another Swiss woman named Emel Gose Gobul. He also said he chased yet another Swiss woman from the country after finding her kissing a 14-year-old boy.

He said that in a further set-up, his two former girlfriends incited donors, mainly in Switzerland and Germany, against directly funding the children’s home.

“Emel and Bridgit, in the month of April 2013, agreed to send the money directly to the account of Bridgit instead of the accounts of the organisation, thereby disrupting the operations,” he said.


Mr Mustiya was last year jailed for 100 years after being convicted by another magistrate over a similar defilement case.
