Ruth Kamande sentenced to death

Miss Lang’ata Prison 2016 beauty pageant winner Ruth Kamande has been sentenced to death for the murder of her boyfriend.

Ms Kamande was found guilty of stabbing Farid Mohammed 22 times in 2015 in Nairobi.

In convicting her, High Court judge Jessie Lesiit noted that her actions proved malice, therefore, convicted her for murder.

Ms Kamande’s advocate had urged the court to hand her a lenient jail sentence arguing that she had “established a close relationship with God” since being taken into custody in 2015.

The advocate told the court that Ms. Kamande had converted to Islam and had since become religious and prays five times a day.

The court further heard that the accused had enrolled to study theology education at the prison, an indication that her stay in custody had streamlined her. Miss Lang’ata Prison 2016 beauty pageant winner Ruth Kamande has been sentenced to death for the murder of her boyfriend.
