Kenyan Beauty queen sentenced to death after murdering boyfriend by stabbing him Several times

A manipulative Kenyan beauty queen has been given a death sentence for murdering her boyfriend by stabbing him 25 times.


Ruth Kamande, 24, who won a prison beauty pageant whilst awaiting trial for the attack on her boyfriend in 2015, has been given the death penalty.


She killed Farid Mohammed, also 24, and showed 'no remorse' for the violent attack which left "blood all over" the crime scene.

Last August, Kamande had been crowned 'Miss Lang'ata Prison' in Nairobi.

Judge Jessie Lesiit who passed the sentence, said: "I want young people to know that it is not cool to kill your boyfriend or girlfriend even where you feel disappointed or frustrated - don't do it.


"Instead, it is cool to walk away and thereafter to forgive."

Human rights group, Amnesty International called the sentence as "cruel, inhumane and outdated". A speaker for the group said:" "This sentence is a blow to Kenya's progressive record in commuting death sentences to terms of imprisonment."

Mr Mohammed's aunt, Emmah Wanjiku said: "We're glad that this day came and his grandparents, his sister were actually in court today when this verdict was given.


"He had just started his job when his life was cut short."

Kamande's lawyer, Joyner Okonjo, said that she would appeal the sentence.
