Man plotted to kill, city court rules

By Faith Karanja | October 18th 2016

A Nairobi court has convicted a businessman charged with conspiracy to kill his partner.

Abdulahim Mohammed Shallo conspired with another man to kill Ashok Rupish Shah in 2012 in a property deal gone sour.

He was charged with attempting to extort Sh5 million from Shah by threatening him, an offence he committed between July 1 and August 1, 2010, by texting him on his mobile phone and emails.

Shallo hurled a petrol bomb at Rupish's car, an incident he survived though his driver died.

Shallo faced 10 counts alongside businessman Hiten Kumar Raja, who was however released due to lack of evidence. Kibera Chief Magistrate Anne Ong'ijo said Shallow will be sentenced on Friday.
