Butcher in sodomy case loses appeal

By Kamau Muthoni | December 30th 2015

A butcher convicted of sodomy and knowingly spreading HIV and Aids will serve his 20-year-jail term after the Court Appeal upheld the lower courts' ruling.

This was his second appeal. The man, labelled by his initials as SKN in the ruling, had Court of Appeal judges Asike Makhandia, William Ouko and Kathurima  M'inoti note that the two lower courts properly convicted him for the offence after being positively identified as the perpetrator.

"Both lower courts were satisfied with the accuracy of this evidence, and the trial court, having had the advantage of seeing the witnesses and assessing their demeanour, we find no basis for interfering with those concurrent findings of fact. The appellant's defence was duly considered and, in view of the weight of the matter, the prosecution evidence was properly considered," the three judges ruled.
