BY CORRESPONDENT,MAKUENI, 8TH AUG 2018-The high court has sentenced Daudi Nzomo, the man filmed assaulting his wife Winfred Mwende in Makueni, for 12 years in prison.
Makueni Senior Principal Magistrate James Mwaniki while issuing the ruling at a pact court room on Wednesday said he considered Nzomo’s criminal record that shows that he has been violent.
Nzomo’s efforts to have the court forgive him saying he had appoligised did not bore fruits.
He had earlier pleaded guilty to the charge of causing grievous harm to Mwende.
Nzomo was arrested in Nguuni, Kibwezi West Constituency last week after the video of him viciously beating his wife went viral on social media.
This prompted the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji to direct the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to look for Nzomo and have him arraigned in court.
DPP Hajji further directed that those who watched and participated in the unacceptable brutality be arrested and arraigned in court too.
