Priest jailed for two years over death of Catholic nun in a road accident

Roman Catholic seminarian will spend his next two years in prison if he fails to pay Sh200,000 fine after he pleaded guilty to causing the death of two people, one of them a nun.


The seminarian, Stanislas Jobo  pleaded guilty to the charge when he was arraigned at Kibera Law Courts. He was charged with causing the death of Nancy Onyango, a nun aged 23 and Benard Omollo on February 2 along Magadi Road at 3am.


Police stated that Jobo was driving from Rongai headed to Nairobi town when he veered off his  lane, leading to a head-on  collision with a lorry.


Police reported that the incident led to the two fatalities,  while the lorry’s occupants escaped unhurt. Jobo, who sustained injuries, was rushed to Nairobi Hospital where he was admitted and treated before being discharged.
Jobo was arraigned in court where he pleaded guilty to the charges.

He said he was remorseful for what happened and that he has been meeting with the families of the bereaved so that they can resolve the matter amicably.


He further asked the court for leniency, saying he too sustained serious injuries during the accident that saw him undergo three surgeries.


“Your Honour, I have also been attending physiotherapy sessions and psychosocial care for which I have an appointment on October 6,” he added in mitigation.
