A former Kisumu journalist, Moses Dola who had been convicted of manslaughter following the death of his wife, former NTV reporter Sarah Wambui Kabiru, has been handed 10 years in prison.
Dola was found guilty of killing his wife in their Umoja house way back in 2011. High Court judge Roseline Korir handed down the sentence on Thursday at the Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi.
According to the judge, there was proof enough cementing the death of Wambui Kabiru to the accused.
Mr Dola who was found to be remorseful and failed to secure a job since the trial started, the judge ruled that it would be improper to set him free.
The judge also pointed out the murder trial was punctuated by free flow of information between relatives of both parties who even wept during trial and provisions in the law allow for the need to deploy reconciliation.

On May 16, 2011, Musa Dola was taken to prison where he spent 627 days before his trial started.
In 2012, Dola deposited a KES 1M bail to secure temporary freedom. On October 5 2018, judge Roseline Korir found Dola guilty of manslaughter and ordered the cancellation of his bond terms.
