A 24 Year Old Man Jailed For 90 Years For Raping, Killing And Robbing at Kitale Court

ODPP Kenyan on Twitter shared information that Kitale Court sentenced a 24-year-old man to 90 years imprisonment for violently robbing, raping and killing his ex-employer, 2 years ago. Prosecution led by Joyce Mumu proved the case before Hon. Julius Ng'arng'ar.

According reports, Court found Chris Wanjala guilty of the gruesome murder of Ms. Lilian Bourcart, 74, a Swedish Missionary who managed a children's home and conducted charity work in Milimani Estate, Kitale.

Hon. Ng'arng'ar said the sentence is meant to be deterrent, retributive and rehabilitative, taking into account the brutality used to commit the offence.

Sentencing of Wanjala's co-accused, Dominic Nyongesa, was deferred pending his age assessment. However, prosecution said that the duo deserved maximum sentence since it is a capital offence, so as to act as deterrence and lesson to others.

Kenyans should open their mind, Incase if you commit a crime just imagine what will Happen to you if you are caught.
