Livestock thief jailed for 7 years

22 May 2013, 14:39 James Kabotia

Nanyuki - A middle age man who pleaded guilty for stealing livestock worth KES 120,000 has been sentenced to seven years imprisonment by a Nanyuki court.

Abdala Musoso pleaded guilty for stealing three cows at Mia Moja village in Laikipia County on Friday last week.

He had been charged alongside Albino Erot of stealing the animals belonging to Kiboi Ndirangu.

The two accused persons also faced a second count of handling stolen goods dishonestly and retaining the cows knowing or having reasons to believe them to be stolen goods.

Musoso pleaded guilty to the charges before acting Principal Magistrate Teresia Bosibori.

In his mitigation, the father of three pleaded for leniency saying that he is the sole breadwinner of his family.

The second accused person Albino Erot pleaded not guilty and was released on a KES 100,000 bond and a surety of the same amount.

The case will be heard on July 7 this year.

Concurrently, the man alleged to have clobbered a priest with a hammer last week was released on a bond of KES 200,000 and a surety of same amount.  

Emmanuel Wachira was charged that on May 13, at about 6.20 Pm at Christ the King catholic mission in Nanyuki town, he assaulted Father Franco Crabu occasioning him actual bodily harm.

Wachira pleaded not guilty to the charge before magistrate Bosibori.

Bosibori directed that the accused person be released on bond terms despite the court prosecutor citing that the complainant is admitted in hospital and in a critical condition.

The case will be heard on July 29 this year.
