Three people found guilty of murdering two colleagues over land tussle have been sentenced to 30 years in prison by the High Court in Kisii.
Jones Wambura, Tagane Mwita and Stephen Mahigara had been accused of killing Samuel Magige and Samuel Nyamuroni at Kenyamangari village in Mashangwa location in Trans Mara on April 1, 2018.
In her ruling, Justice Roseline Ougo said the evidence presented by the prosecution had proven beyond reasonable doubt that Wambura, Mwita and Mahigara had attacked Magige and Nyamuroni on the said date with the intentions of causing death or grievous bodily harm.
“This court has ruled that the three accused people are to each serve a 30-year jail sentence for each of the two offences they committed, with both sentences running concurrently. They have a right to appeal within 14 days,” ruled Ougo.
