Kenyans on social media are miffed that media personality and TV actor Davis Mwabili alias Inspekta Mwala was given a lenient sentence after causing the death of a pedestrian
Inspekta Mwala was today sentenced to 1 year in jail or pay a Sh30,000 fine.
Mariakani senior principal magistrate Nelly Adalo found Mwala guilty of causing death by dangerous driving.
“The offence of causing death by dangerous driving is not an ordinary offence. The people that commit this offence do not have a propensity for it, neither is it a crime committed for revenge, gain, lust or to emulate other criminals.
In those circumstances, the accused is sentenced to pay a fine of Sh30, 000 in default, serve 1-year imprisonment,” the senior principal magistrate ruled.
The actor also apologized to the family of the deceased saying,
“I am very sorry. I also ask for forgiveness from the family of the deceased. I had not planned to cause the accident. I had no intention to kill, save that an accident occurred and I cannot have left where I was to go and cause the accident,” Mwala said.
The accident occurred on August 26 in Kaloleni, Kilifi county.
