Nairobi businessman Tom Oywa Mboya has been found guilty of attempted murder and sentenced to 23 years in jail by a Nairobi court. Oywa was found guilty of two counts of attempted murder as well as injuring Ranalo Foods restaurant proprietor William Osewe in 2016 over a woman and sentenced to 20 yrs and a further 3yrs for attempting to kill Wilfred Tembula.

In her ruling yesterday, Milimani Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku said the evidence presented by the prosecution proved beyond reasonable doubt that Mboya was guilty. According to the evidence adduced in court, Mboya allegedly shot Osewe several times in December 2016 at a popular eatery in Garden Estate after an argument over Stella Mutheu, who was said to be the the latter’s wife.

The court further assessed the impact of the offence on the victim as Osewe is still adversely affected by the criminal act. The magistrate, conversely, ruled that the sentence will run concurrently meaning Mboya will serve 20 years.
