“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, said  Adalo.

In those circumstances, the accused is sentenced to pay a fine of Sh30, 000 in default, serve 1-year imprisonment,” Adalo ruled.

Mwala did however apologize to the family of the deceased, Ismael, in his mitigation.

“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.
