High Court Had Declined To Order The Treatment Of Journalist Moses Dola Who Was Jailed For 10 Years

High Court had declined to order the treatment of Moses Dola Otieno who is serving a 10-year sentence for the murder of his wife a former NTV Journalist Wambui Kabiru.

Journalist Moses Otieno was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for taking part in killing of former NTV reporter Ms Wambui Kabiru.

On the fateful day, the suspect allegedly left his dead wife in their house and went on a drinking spree while pretending that all was well.

Wambui Kabiru, the deceased,a former NTV reporter, died at their home in Umoja estate, Nairobi.

Judge Roselyne Korir ruled that the accused was party and parcel in the fight that led to the death of his wife and was therefore culpable.

Justice Weldon Korir in 2016 heard that the couple's bedroom was locked and Dola denied Kabiru medical attention.

Prosecutor Catherine Mwaniki said medical examination confirmed the TV presenter was hit with a blunt object. 

In May 2016, the High Court ruled that the prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt against journalist Dola for Kabiru's murder.

In a 2014 interview with Citizen television, Moses Otieno Dola described the goings on after Kabiru's death as one of the "darkest moments" in his life.
