A quantity surveyor will spend three years in jail or pay a Sh 350,000 fine for killing a university of Nairobi student along Thika Superhighway in 2016.
Job Wangila was found guilty of killing Brian Kiambati, who was a third year engineering student at the University of Nairobi.
A Nairobi court heard on Monday that he made a wrong U-turn in attempt to evade the alcoblow test but collided head-on with a vehicle in which Kiambati had been travelling.
Parties broke into tears before Senior Resident Magistrate Elector Riani.
Riani noted Wangila had been driving on the wrong side of the road when the accident occurred in Kasarani area.
“The postmortem report shows the deceased died of head and chest injuries. It’s evident that the accused was driving carelessly.”
A lesson for all drunk drivers.
