Moses Dola has been convicted of manslaughter in the murder case of journalist Sarah Wambui Kabiru.

On Friday, he told the court that he never intended to kill her and that he was sorry.

“The fatal assault was done by the accused…It is the accused who caused the death of the deceased..the conduct of Moses Dola was that of a guilty person,” Judge Roselyne Korir said.

The court further ruled that the accused was the stronger party in the fight he was embroiled in with the late Kabiru.

On its part, the Prosecution said there are no previous criminal records on Dola.

They further added that there are three factors that the court should consider for the accused not to be given a non custodial sentence.

“Wambui died at a young age and the son deprived of her mother at a young age too. This court should sentence Dola,” the Prosecution added.

The Judge ruled that before the court issues its verdict, a report must be filed on pre-sentencing.

She further added that sentencing would to be delivered on notice and Dola remains in custody for now.

Probation officers are file the pre-sentencing report to enable the court reach a conclusive verdict.

The matter is to be mentioned on October 26 before the deputy registrar.

Sarah Wambui Kabiru was killed seven years ago at the couple’s home in Umoja estate, Nairobi.

They had a son who was two years old at the time.
