Woman to hang for robbery with violence

07 January 2014, 10:01

A middle-aged woman has been charged in a Mombasa law court for robbery with violence and possessing a firearm without permit.

Tabitha Mwikali, who is suspected to be a member of a dangerous gang that has been terrorizing residents of Tononoka and Bamburi in Mombasa County, denied the charges before senior magistrate Stephen Riech. 

It is alleged that on January 2 at Tononoka area within Mombasa County, Mwikali jointly with others not in court and armed with pistols, robbed Jedida Kurwirwa a mobile phone and Safaricom scratchcards valued at KES 37,000.

On the second count, the accused is alleged to have robbed Josephat Chirema three ATM cards from Cooperative, Equity and  National banks.

On the third count, the accused was found in possession of a ceska pistol serial number G 3661 without a firearm certificate contrary to the firearm act section 4(1).

However, Riech warned that if the accused is found guilty by the court, she will be sentenced to hang as stipulated in the law.

The case will be heard on February 24, 2014.

Still at the Mombasa law court, a man has been charged with illegally possessing a government property and a pistol.

It is alleged that on January 5, Clinton Omondi was found in possession of a pair of handcuffs and a pistol.

The prosecutor, Simon Waithaka, told the court that the accused was found at Consolata area in Likoni within Mombasa County following a tip from members of the public who suspected him of engaging in illegal activities.

He pleaded guilty before Riech. The case will be heard on March 3, 2014.
