Miss Lang’ata Prison 2016 beauty pageant Ruth Kamande has been found guilty of killing her boyfriend Farid Mohammed in 2015.

High Court judge Jessie Lesiit will sentence Ms. Kamande on July 11, 2018.

“Stabs were not at ago, they were done in intervals. This is clear from the prosecution evidence,” Lesiit said.

The court ruled that Kamande’s actions proved malice and therefore convicted her for murder.

On allegations of rape, the court said that doctors carried out examinations and found that she had not been raped as she had alleged.

Kamande, who has been in remand for two years, had argued that things escalated after she discovered a hospital card that suggested that Mohammed was undergoing HIV treatment.

When she confronted her boyfriend about it, she claimed, he threatened her saying they would both rather die than have his HIV status known to the public.

The argument according to the beauty pageant, further escalated when she discovered letters from two other women.

The accused claims she stabbed her boyfriend with a kitchen knife after it fell on her as they were struggling on the ground.

According to a doctor who testified in the case , Mohammed had 25 stabs.
