Finally, after the killing of former Embakasi MP Melitus Mugabe Were 8 years down the line justice prevailed. Mr were was killed in 2008 shortly after the general elections by gun armed men in Woodley estate, Nairobi.
The three named as James Omondi, Wycliffe Simiyu and Paul Otieno were handed their death sentence after the judge proved that they were responsible for Mr. Were’s death. After an analysis of the evidence provided against the three and their failure to plead innocent or ask for mercy the judge acted according to the law by sentencing them to death.
Another suspect names Ms. Mary Wamaitha who was linked to the murder escaped death sentence on the basis of no evidence linking her to the murder. High court judge Mr. Justice Luka Kimaru declared her innocent and she was set free.
