The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Judiciary -

A 30-year-old man who shot a girl in Koro­go­cho slum and stole from her four years ago has been sen­tenced to death. Dan­son Mwangi was found guilty of vi­o­lently rob­bing 17-year-old Ifra Ibrahim. He ap­peared be­fore principal mag­is­trate Steven Jalang’o. The court heard that Mwangi robbed Ibrahim of a mo­bile phone and weaves, all worth Sh7,750 on April 15, 2012, in Kasarani. He shot Ibrahim in the neck be­fore van­ish­ing in to the nearby es­tates. Mwangi hid for two years be­fore he was ar­rested and charged. Ibrahim was treated at the Kenyatta Na­tional Hospi­tal. While her con­di­tion im­proved, her voice has not been re­stored since then be­cause of a bul­let lodged in her neck. Ibrahim’s mother told the court she was stand­ing near a play­ground at 1pm, when she spot­ted Mwangi, well-known in the es­tate, strug­gling with her daugh­ter. She said she heard a gun­shot then saw her daugh­ter on the ground.
