Memory Lane! How Beauty Queen Was Sentenced to Death for Stabbing Her Boyfriend 25 Times!

A 24-year-old Kenyan beauty queen, Ruth Kamande was sentenced to death in 2018 for murdering her boyfriend after stabbing him 25 times. 

Kamamde, who won a prison beauty pageant while awaiting trial, was said to have shown no remorse for the vicious attack on her late boyfriend which left “blood all over” the crime scene.

The judge, Jessie Lesiit, while giving the sentence said:

“I want young people to know that it is not cool to kill your boyfriend or girlfriend even where you feel disappointed or frustrated – don’t do it. Instead, it is cool to walk away and thereafter to forgive. I think passing any other sentence than the one prescribed death would turn the accused into a hero.”

Ruth Kamande slashed her partner Farid Mohammed, 24, to death in 2015 and was convicted in May, 2018. The judge accused Kamande of “manipulative” behaviour that included accessing the victim’s mobile phone as well as showing no remorse for the vicious attack which left “blood all over” the crime scene.

However Amnesty International has described the judgement as “cruel, outdated and inhumane.” The human rights organisation’s director Irungu Houghton said: “This sentence is a blow to Kenya’s progressive record in commuting death sentences to terms of imprisonment.”

The victim’s family insisted the sentence matched the crime. “We’re glad that this day came and his grandparents, his sister were actually in court today when this verdict was given,” the victim’s tearful aunt Emmah Wanjiku told reporters after the sentencing. “He had just started his job when his life was cut short.”

Kamande’s lawyer Joyner Okonjo said she would appeal the sentence. Kenya has an effective ban on carrying out death sentences and no death row prisoner has been executed since 1987. 

The country’s Supreme Court ruled in December 2017 that the mandatory death sentence for murder and armed robbery was unconstitutional, according to the Death Penalty Information Centre.

The death sentence remains on the statute books however.
