The Killers Of Former Embakasi MP Melitus Mugabe Were Sentenced To Death
As the nation continues to mourn the death of Kabete Member of parliament Hon. George Muchai and his aides, the high court today sentenced to death 3 men who are alleged to be behind the murder of the former legislator. The judge, Justice Luka Kimaru ruled that the prosecution had proved beyond reasonable doubt that James Omondi, Wycliffe Simiyu and Paul Otieno were involved in the January 29, 2008 murder.
Passing the judgment, justice Kimaru noted “Having analysed the evidence and the accused person’s decision not to ask for mercy, I sentence them to death as prescribed in law.”
A fourth accomplice, Ms Mary Wamaitha was however set free after the prosecution could not link her to the murder.
