  • 24-year-old Ruth Kamande, who was crowned Miss Lang’a­ta Prison beau­ty pageant in 2016, was July sen­tenced to death by High Court judge Jessie Lessit for stab­bing her lover Farid Mohammed more than 22 times.
  • For the beau­ty queen with brains, who recent­ly con­vert­ed to Islam and enrolled for a the­ol­o­gy course the Pope has heard her prayers loud and clear.

As Kenya’s beau­ty queen and most ‘beau­ti­ful’ mur­der­er cools her heels at Lang’ata Women’s prison await­ing her date with the hang­man, mil­lions of miles away one of the most senior per­sons revered by mil­lions world­wide and said to com­mu­ni­cate with God direct­ly is fight­ing for her life.

24-year-old Ruth Kamande, who was crowned Miss Lang’a­ta Prison beau­ty pageant in 2016, was July sen­tenced to death by High Court judge Jessie Lessit for stab­bing her lover Farid Mohammed more than 22 times.

I want the youth to know it is not cool to kill your boyfriends or girl­friends. Instead, it is cool to walk away and for­get,” Judge Lessit said in her rul­ing.

Many Kenyans were struck by her beau­ty with some even ques­tion­ing if such a beau­ty should spend the rest of her life in prison her mur­der charges notwith­stand­ing.

This girl is so beau­ti­ful… she’s so young… she has lost her entire life; that is enough pun­ish­ment, real­ly,” Suba North MP Mil­lie Odhi­ambo said

Before her death sen­tence rul­ing could even dry, human rights groups led by Amnesty Inter­na­tion­al-Kenya fault­ed the sen­tenc­ing and called on Pres­i­dent Uhu­ru Keny­at­ta to inter­vene on her case.

We are con­cerned that Kenya con­tin­ues to use this cru­el, inhu­mane and out­dat­ed mode of pun­ish­ment. This sen­tence is a blow to Kenya’s pro­gres­sive record in com­mut­ing death sen­tences to terms of impris­on­ment,“a state­ment by Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Irun­gu Houghton read.

The Catholic Church has now come to her res­cue and joined calls for com­plete­ly abol­ish­ing the death sen­tence.

Pope Fran­cis has declared the death penal­ty “inad­mis­si­ble” in an update of Catholic believ­ers’ most impor­tant guide to Church teach­ing, the cat­e­chism, the Vat­i­can said Thurs­day.

The Church teach­es, in the light of the Gospel, that ‘the death penal­ty is inad­mis­si­ble because it is an attack on the invi­o­la­bil­i­ty and dig­ni­ty of the per­son’,” the new text states.

Fran­cis approved the change to the cat­e­chism, which cov­ers a wide range of moral and social issues, dur­ing a meet­ing in May with the head of the Con­gre­ga­tion for the Doc­trine of the Faith, the Church’s doc­tri­nal watch­dog.

The update also says the Church will “work with deter­mi­na­tion” for the abo­li­tion of the death penal­ty world­wide.

Recourse to the death penal­ty on the part of legit­i­mate author­i­ty, fol­low­ing a fair tri­al, was long con­sid­ered an appro­pri­ate response to the grav­i­ty of cer­tain crimes and an accept­able, albeit extreme, means of safe­guard­ing the com­mon good,” the new text says.

For the beau­ty queen with brains, she scored an A- in her 2017 Kenya Cer­tifi­cate of Sec­ondary Exam­i­na­tion (KCSE) exams, who recent­ly con­vert­ed to Islam and enrolled for a the­ol­o­gy course the Pope has cer­tain­ly heard her prayers loud and clear and he is sure to direct­ly con­vey them to God, wouldn’t he?
