Miss Lang’ata Women Prison Ruth Kamande sentenced to death for killing boyfriend

The High Court has sentenced Ruth Kamande,24, the reigning Miss Langata Prison, to death.

Kamande was found guilty of killing her boyfriend, Farid Mohammed, who she stabbed over twenty times following a domestic dispute.

Justice Jessie Lesiit made the ruling at the Milimani law court on Thursday.

Lesiit said she had no other option but to send her to the hangman’s noose, as she deliberately stabbed her boyfriend.

Kamande had been found guilty of killing Farid Mohammed, 24, in 2015.

The prison beauty queen had defended herself by telling the court that she had discovered that her boyfriend was undergoing HIV treatment and threatened her when she confronted him over the matter.
