MP son says he is suffering in prison demand release

06 September 2016, 18:59

Mombasa - The son of a Member of Parliament is now begging the court to save him from the tough life he has been going through at a Mombasa jail.

Mafanikio Mwanyoha, who is the son of Matuga Member of parliament Hassan Mwanyoha, has been suffering prison after a death penalty was issued to him.

He was sentenced death penalty on April 2016 for robbery with violence. He was found robbing tourist by the name peter schadowisky a bag,an LG, mobile phone,a pair of spectacles, a company ID and credit card all valued Shs 14625 on August 19th 2015 at Bougan Villa Estate in Diani. He was fully armed with a knife.

The MP's son on Monday urged the Mombasa High Court to hear his appeal as soon as possible as he was suffering in prison.

His appeal was set to be heard on September 5th but was adjourned due to a file missing in court.

However, the court was heard that the file was still at the Kwale court where Mwanyoha and Hassan were convicted.

Reports indicate that Mafanikio could wait longer since the secretary assigned to type proceedings of the lower court is on leave.

The accused was convicted in kwale court and since then the family have shunned their son who has been in police since last year for the family failing to raise a bond of Shs 2million to lighten the case and also family members did not attend court sessions.

On April 19th 2016 Matunga MP Hassan Mwanyoha surprised many when he said his family has accepted a court ruling in which his son was issued death penalty for robbery with violence.

He was fully supported by Kwale Woman representative Zainab Chidzuga saying the MP did his best to show the son the right direction.  She added that the MP had secured the release of his son from custody more than three occasions and had reached a point where he had given up.
