Published

The widow of a dad-of-two killed by a dangerous driver two weeks after getting married has spoken of her heartbreak.

Jevgenijs Kirilliovs, 39, died on November 1 last year when a lorry being driven on the wrong side of the road by Piotr Wierzbicki crashed into his Jaguar X-Type on the A45 near Daventry, Northants.

Wierzbicki, 39, of Sank, Poland, pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving and was jailed on Friday for two years and eight months.

Mr Kirilliovs’ widow Giedre said: “Not only have I lost my husband but I have lost my soul mate, my best friend and the father of our two children.

“Jevgenijs was the greatest person and all three of us never went a day doubting his love. He would always spend time with us, his family.

“We were always his priority. We lived our lives for our children.

“Since his death, all of us have struggled every minute of every day.

“We have gone through hell and back.

“It constantly haunts me that at the time of Jevgenijs’ death, I was not there to comfort him or share a goodbye.

“The loneliness and sadness we all feel is enormous.”

Lead investigator, DC Ady Tredwell, from Northamptonshire Police, said: “I am pleased to see Wierzbicki sentenced today, though no amount of time could ever make up for the loss of the much-loved Jevgenijs Kirilliovs.

“The court was really moved by the clarity and honesty of Mr Kirilliovs’ wife’s statement this morning – it is so clear how much he is missed, every second of every day.

“Mr Kirilliovs had his whole life ahead of him – he had just got married, had two beautiful children, and lots to look forward to.

“Wierzbicki’s actions on November 1, 2019, cruelly took this from him forever.

“This has been a lengthy investigation which I am glad concluded in a guilty plea so Mr Kirilliovs’ family did not have to go through a trial.

“I hope they can take a small amount of comfort from this conviction and my thoughts will remain with them long after today.”

Jevgenijs’ sister-in-law Ausra Uzukauskaite said: “It’s very tragic. That day he was driving to work was the first day back to work from his wedding holiday.

“He was the most amazing dad. A real family man. Everything was about his kids. He was also a very healthy man who loved the gym and looked after himself.

“He was so happy at his wedding just two weeks before.”

For pleading guilty, Wierzbicki was given a third off, making his sentence two years and eight months, half of which he will spend in prison and half of which he will spend on licence.

He was also disqualified from driving for 40 months.

Sossion daughter celebration: MP reveals child’s enviable journey to top Law Company

Published

on

Nominated Member of Parliament Wilson Sossion on Saturday held a thanksgiving ceremony at his Motigo Village home in Bomet County to celebrate his daughter, Rosemary Chepkorir Sossion, for achieving admirable academic feat.

Rosemary holds two undergraduate degrees from the University of Nairobi (UoN), and is an Advocate of the High Court after she was admitted to the Bar in February 2020 following her successful completion of her post-graduate education at the Kenya School of Law (KSL).

Speaking at the event, which was attended by among others, ODM leader Raila Odinga, COTU chief Francis Atwoli, KANU Secretary-General Nick Salat, Senate Minority Leader James Orengo, Sossion said he was proud of his firstborn child, who overcame turbulence of losing a mother, to still post top grades in school.

Sossion’s first wife-cum-Rosemary’s mother, Monica Sossion, died in a road accident in 2010.

“She (Rosemary) has graduated with two degrees: a bachelor’s degree in Law from the University of Nairobi and a Bachelor’s of Arts in International Relations from the University of Nairobi. She also successfully completed her post-graduate diploma at the Kenya School of Law, and was subsequently admitted to the Bar in the month of February [2020]. She was, thereafter, taken up by one of the most reputable law firms in Kenya, Oraro & Company Advocates. She is now a practising lawyer,” Sossion said while addressing invited guests at the ceremony.

“Mine as a father, is to congratulate and thank her. She is my firstborn [child]. When her mother died, she was in Form Two. She has been a very strong girl in every way. When she graduated with her first degree, Bachelor of Law, I rewarded her with a car. When she graduated with a degree in International Relations, I paid for her trip to the United Kingdom. Today, I am not giving you any gift; I am handing you over to the public so that you can serve the public. Deliver justice to the people that you will represent,” added Sossion.

“This country’s democracy and human rights must be promoted, and it is lawyers who are supposed to do it, and you are one of them. As a father, I can tell you that I have presented a competent lawyer to you. Parents, let us not be shy to celebrate children when they do well.”

“She (Rosemary) is part of a team acting for a renown commercial bank (under receivership) in a recovery suit after massive theft and embezzlement of funds worth USD 220 million (Ksh23.8 billion) from individuals and companies,” says Oraro & Company Advocates on its website.

“She is also part of a team representing directors in a Kenyan company concerning the fraudulent and unlawful transfer of the shares which resulted in the unlawful transfer of the company’s property.”
