1.The accused person herein has been convicted of lesser offence of manslaughter after a trial for the offence of murder.
2.The accused person’s counsel has asked for a non-custodial sentence. The Prosecuting Counsel however felt that the victim’s family was against reconciliation.
3.A pre-sentence report and a victim impact report were filed, both of which I have perused and considered.
4.Having taken into account the circumstances of the case, the submissions on both sides, and the reports filed, and the fact that a knife was used to kill the deceased, and in order to discourage acts of violence, I sentence the accused person to five (5) years imprisonment.
DELIVERED, SIGNED & DATED THIS 21ST DAY OF FEBRUARY, 2023, IN OPEN COURT AT MAKUENI.…………………………………George DuluJudge
