Gregory Wabwire, a former police officer who was found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm to a hawker has been sentenced to 3 years in jail.

The court also gave him an option of paying a fine of Ksh.100,000.

He was found guilty of assaulting Dominic Munyoki on January 31, 2019.

The court had been told that the ex-policeman arrested Munyoki eight years ago for allegedly refusing to remove a handcart that was blocking the road.

The officer had ordered the hawker to move the handcart but the man declined and explained that he was not the owner.

This angered the officer who took Munyoki to the Chief’s Camp at Huruma estate where he beat him several times on the head with a metal bar.

He sustained serious head injuries and a fracture on the leg.

At the time of the assault, Wabwire was the AP officer in charge of Mathare Division.
