AND

REPUBLIC .......................................................RESPONDENT

(Application for extension of time to appeal out of time from a sentence of the High Court of Kenya at Nyeri (Juma, J) dated 26.7.2000

in

H.C.CR.C. NO. 15 OF 1999)

*****************

R U L I N G

The applicant wishes to appeal against a sentence of ten years imposed on him for the offence of manslaughter. He pleaded guilty to the charge. The sentence was passed by the magistrate’s court. An appeal to High Court confirmed it. As the sentence is not illegal this court has no jurisdiction.

Dated and delivered at Nyeri this 29th day of October, 2002.

A.B. SHAH
