Man convicted of PEV murder now sentenced to death

By Standard Reporter | February 20th 2015

Nakuru, Kenya: The Court of Appeal in Nakuru has sentenced to death 26-year-old Paul Kipkemboi Rutto alias Saitoti for murder during the 2008 post-election violence.

This is the first such sentence in connection with the violence. In 2012, the High Court had handed Kipkemboi a life sentence for the January 1, 2008 murder of Kamau Kimani Thiong’o at Kamura village in Timboroa.

According to the evidence by 11 prosecution witnesses, Thiongo was killed in cold blood in broad daylight at his farm.

Witnesses told the High Court that the deceased was hit by an arrow on the head whereby he fell down, adding that Saitoti rushed to where the deceased was and attacked him with a panga.
