MISCELLANEOUS CRIMINAL APPLICATION NO. 70 OF 2019
ISAIAH OKINDA NYANGWESO alias HARAMBEE...................APPLICANT
1. This matter was placed before me for the purpose of giving directions, in view of the recent decision by the Supreme Court in Francis Karioko Muruatetu & another vs. Republic; Katiba Institute & 5 others (Amicus Curiae  (Koome CJ&P, Mwilu DCJ&VP, Ibrahim, Wanjala, Ndung’u & Lenaola SSJJ), with respect to mandatory sentences, where it was clarified that the decision, in Francis Karioko Muruatetu & another vs. Republic  eKLR (Maraga CJ&P, Mwilu DCJ&VP, Ojwang, Wanjala, Njoki and Lenaola SCJJ), had arisen from proceedings relating to murder, under section 204 of the Penal Code, Cap 63, Laws of Kenya, and the position stated in the said decision was intended to apply only to mandatory sentences with respect to murder cases.
2. The application herein, dated 23rd July 2019, filed herein on 12th September 2019, is not founded on the decision, in Francis Karioko Muruatetu & another vs. Republic  eKLR (Maraga CJ&P, Mwilu DCJ&VP, Ojwang, Wanjala, Njoki and Lenaola SCJJ), for the applicant does not seek review of his sentence, where he had been convicted of defilement, contrary to section 8(1)(4) of the Sexual Offences Act, No. 3 of 2006, in Butere SRMCCRC No. 376 of 2012, but seeks leave to file appeal out of time.
