MP faces death sentence

Just in

Mbugua was charged alongside two suspected goons who were caught on camera assaulting former NCBDA Chairman Timothy Muriuki.

Under Kenyan law, robbery with violence is a capital offence that attracts the sentence to death.

The three suspects were charged under Section 292 (2) which establishes the death sentence on those found guilty of robbery that involves violence.

"If the offender is armed with any dangerous or offensive weapon or instrument, or is in company with one or more other person or persons, or if, at or immediately before or immediately after the time of the robbery, he wounds, beats, strikes or uses any other personal violence to any person, he shall be sentenced to death," the section reads.
