Kenyan Woman Sentenced To 20 Years Imprisonment For Killing Her Indian Boyfriend

A 33-year-old woman has been sentenced to 20 years imprisonment by a Narok High Court after she was found guilty of shooting dead her Indian boyfriend in their bedroom four years ago.

Hellen Wambui, a trader who appeared before Narok High Court Judge Justice Justus Bwonong’a was found guilty of murdering her boyfriend Roy Ibrahim at Nkorinkori in Narok South Sub County on January 20, 2015.

While delivering the ruling on Monday, Justice Bwonong’a said that the court determined the sentence term after considering all factors including mitigation of the accused.


Justice Bwonong’a told the court that the evidence adduced before court proved beyond any reasonable doubt that she committed the crime.

The accused who until her sentence was a trader in Narok town had told the court she met Mr. Ibrahim in the year 2007 and were living together in one house.

“Indeed the life of a middle-aged man who happens to be a longtime boyfriend of the accused was lost. Investigations revealed that a short gun was used where the accused fired two shots with one hitting on the deceased killing him on the spot and another missing the target passing through the beddings," said Mr Bwonong’a.

The accused however suffered a setback in her quest for a non-custodial sentence through her lawyer James Onduso on mitigation that she was a sole breadwinner, a mother of two and was a first-time offender but the court declined, terming the crime as serious.

Earlier on, Wambui had told the court that she was suffering from kidney problem and needed dialysis but upon being directed to go for a medical checkup at Narok Referral Hospital, it was found that she had normal functioning organs though was found to be having peptic ulcers.

However, the 11 witnesses who appeared before the court among them three Criminal Investigating Officers, two cooks, medics, neighbour and a guard gave clear testimony that found the young woman guilty.

“I find that custodial sentence is necessary for this circumstance as the offence was committed using a sophisticated weapon and therefore the appropriate sentence is 20 years,” ruled Justice Bwonong’a.

The accused was however given 14 days to appeal the sentence term of the entire ruling as stipulated by the constitution.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
