Two to hang after losing appeal in murder case

Two murder convicts will be hanged after the Court of Appeal in Kisumu upheld the death sentence passed against them nine years ago.

David Senerwa and Joseph Mururu were sentenced to death by the High Court in Kakamega for the murder of Sylvester Shakwala in November 2001 at Iloro village, Shibuye.

The two had moved to the Court of Appeal to challenge the sentence. They said the trial judge failed to consider discrepancies in the prosecution evidence.
