Ex-Moi Girls Student Who Started Fire That Killed 10 To Be Sentenced On 24th.
On February 24, a student who started a fire that killed ten of her classmates will learn her fate.
The now-18-year-old student appeared in court yesterday for mitigation before trial judge Stella Mutuku. The meeting was held in front of a camera. The media was not permitted entry.
In December of last year, the 18-year-old was found guilty of manslaughter.
In convicting her, Justice Mutuku stated that the accused did not start the fire with the intention of killing her classmates, but rather in a desperate attempt to be transferred from the school by any means possible.
“Her aim may have been just to cause a fire and burn the building without hurting anyone, but it was ill-intentioned, given that the building had two floors and there were going to be casualties as a result of the fire,” she said.

According to the judge, her hatred for Moi Girls Secondary School drove her to start the fire not with the intention of killing her classmates, but rather to get transferred by any means possible.
“The subject, in her naivety, may have overlooked the consequences of her actions. Her attempt to wake some of her friends up was aimed at rescuing them from the fire,” observed the judge.

In convicting the accused, the judge stated that because the prosecution failed to prove the element of malice aforethought, she could not find her guilty of murder.
“Consequently, I find her not guilty of the 10 counts of murder she is facing. She is hereby acquitted of the 10 counts of murder but I find her guilty of 10 counts of manslaughter,” the judge said.
In the case, 42 witnesses testified.
