RE Aburili, J
December 19, 2022
Joseph Ongang’ Nyatodi
1.The applicant/petitioner is Joseph Ongang’ Nyatodi. He claims that he was convicted vide HCRA No 3 of 2016 at Siaya from original Siaya PM Cr Case No 176 of 2014 and sentenced to life imprisonment for the offence of defilement contrary to section 8(1) as read with section 8(2) of the Sexual Offences Act No 3 of 2006.
2.He wants review of life imprisonment because according to him, it is unconstitutional. He does not state when he was convicted by the lower court and the High Court.
3.I have perused the court records availed to me. HCCRA 3 of 2016 is an appeal by Isaiah Otieno Juma and Caleb Odhiambo Okoth and it was consolidated with HCRA No 2 of 2016. The offence therein was robbery with violence.
4.The accused were sentenced to death vide Siaya PM Cr Case No 921 of 2014. Their appeal to this court was heard and determined on February 23, 2017 by Makau J.
5.There is no relationship between the present petitioner’s case and HCRA No 3 of 2016.
6.For the above reasons this petition is found to be misplaced as the applicant does not even feature in our court records.
7.It is hereby dismissed for want of proper and relevant particulars.
8.Petitioner to be notified forthwith
9.This file is closed.
