It’s One Year Jail Term For Inspekta Mwala For Causing Death Through Dangerous Driving

Radio presenter and comedian Davis Mwabili alias Inspekta Mwala has been sentenced to serve a year in jail or pay a fine of Ksh30,000.

Mwala was freed on a Ksh40,000 police bond pending his trial for killing the pedestrian in Kilifi.

He was accused of hitting and killing a pedestrian, Samwel Mwaki, 35, during the 11.00 pm accident as he was driving to Kaloleni from Mazeras.

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.
