Michael Mugo Kihara v. Republic

Court of Appeal  •  Criminal Appeal 90 of 1996  •  21 Apr 1997  •  Kenya

Coram
Riaga Samuel Cornelius Omolo, Samuel Elikana Ondari Bosire, Abdulrasul Ahmed Lakha

Judgement

JUDGMENT OF THE COURT

The appellant was convicted of burglary and theft contrary to Section 304(2) and 279(b) of the Penal Code.

Upon a careful consideration of the evidence we are not satisfied that there was sufficient evidence to sustain the Conviction. Mr. Bwonwongo for the Republic does not support the Conviction and is our opinion rightly so.

Accordingly the appeal is allowed, conviction quashed and sentence set aside. He is to be released forthwith unless otherwise lawfully held.

Dated and delivered at Nairobi this 21st day of April, 1997.

R.S.C. OMOLO
