Two boda boda riders were sentenced to death on 10 November 2018 for stealing a laptop after losing an appeal in a high court.
The two, Simon Kamau and Daniel Mwatha, were handed the sentence by a Nyeri High Court after conviction.
Handing them over to the hangman, Justice Abigail Mshila dismissed the duo's appeal upholding an earlier ruling by a lower court.
According to court records, the riders robbed their victim, Maurine Mumbi of her laptop and personal items valued at Ksh73,000.
They were armed with a knife as they accosted her at Dedan Kimathi University back in February 2014.
