Former prison beauty queen Ruth Kamande was found guilty of killing her boyfriend and sentenced to death at Milimani Law Courts on Thursday.

High Court judge Jessie Lesiit on Thursday noted that Kamande deliberately stabbed her boyfriend 25 times with the intention of causing pain, leading to his death.

"I want young people to know that it is not cool to kill your boyfriend or girlfriend instead it is cool to walk away from a relationship when it breaks down," said Judge Lesiit.


The 2016 Miss Lang’ata Prison, had pleaded with the court to spare her life, saying she had reformed and regretted killing her boyfriend.

Kamande who has been in custody since 2015 when was found guilty of killing her 22-year-old boyfriend, Farid Mohammed.

According to submissions made in court, Kamande stabbed Mohammed over twenty times following a domestic dispute sparked by a revelation that he had been taking HIV suppressing drugs without her knowledge.
