Kabando’s brother reveals why he killed mother

05 August 2014, 09:04 Joseph Njung’eh

Mukurweini - MP Kabando Wa Kabando’s younger brother, Ceasar Thiari on Monday spoke out as to why he allegedly killed his mother using a panga.

Thiari asked police officers to be given an opportunity to address the media after his trial at a Mukurweini court.

“I want to tell the world something,” Thiari who looked more composed than before started.

The 40-year-old man suspected to have killed his mother, Rose Wachera Mwangi-Kariuki, said he would like to be forgiven by everyone since he was sorry for what happened.

“I wish the whole world will forgive me, even my brothers, my sisters, my relatives and my distant cousins. I never wished to kill mother. I became angry and used a panga to kill her. It was not easy killing my mother. I was unconscious,” he said.

“My mother shocked me when she asked me whether I knew why my father Erastus Mwangi died in 1980? Let me first go to Nairobi and when I come back, I will reveal all to you,” he continued.

He narrated that the question aggrieved him because he loved his father so much.

He claimed that he had tried many times to be independent in life and at one time he reared rabbits as income generating project but family members would frustrate him.

“Whenever there is a family meeting at home they normally send proxies instead of them appearing in person to me,” said the suspect in handcuffs under tight security.

He lamented that since he was arrested on July 27, last month, after the death incident nobody has ever visited at custody and he relies on borrowed clothes and lives bare footed.

“I don’t have money for a lawyer but I hope one day I will be free. Let the world see that I am not an animal but a human being. There will come a time when the world will realize that it wasn’t my wish. I know one day I will come out of police cells and become an icon,” he stated.

“The bible says nobody is perfect. I have repented all what I did and so my brother Kabando and others should know this. I pray that one day I will be a good person in the society,” he added.

Thiari however denied that he has been using drugs but stated that he stopped using drugs long time ago before ‘I went at Asumbi rehabilitation centre many years ago’.

“One can use drugs due to frustrations or to get high but I stopped using them along time ago,” he added.

He maintained that all he would wish is to reconcile with the family and be forgiven for he will change forever.
