BY NT CRIME REPORTER.
“The pain my family has gone through is not worth the conviction,” emotional mother tells journalist after court hands a quantity surveyor a three year jail term for killing her “engineer” son.

The conviction, the family said revived the wound of the untimely loss of their son Brian Kiambati who was killed by a drunk quantity surveyor who was trying to escape from NTSA alcoblow cops.

Job Wangila Wandera was found guilty of killing the University of Nairobi student along the Thika Super Highway.

The unfortunate incident happened in 2016 when he made a wrong U-turn in attempt to evade alcoblow cops and collided head on with the vehicle the deceased was a passenger.

Nairobi Senior resident Magistrate Elector Riani sent Wandera to serve a 3 years imprisonment or pay Sh350,000.

Brian Kiambati was a third year engineering student at the University of Nairobi.

“The accused was driving wrong side along thika road around Kasarani area, according to inspection report it was head-on collision, postmortem report shows the deceased died of head and chest injuries, making a u-turn at thika round about, it’s evident that the accused was driving carelessly” the magistrate said.

When asked to give his point of view before court to counter mitigation by the Wangila’s advocate, Brian’s father Mr Kiambati told the court that No amount of punishment can bring back Brian.

In an interview with the press after the judgment, Kiambati said that he only wanted justice for his son which has been served.

The deceased mother-Liliana Maina however said that the pain the family has gone through is not worth the conviction.

The court relied heavily on Testimonies by a local TV crew who were on an assignment to cover a crack down on drunk driving confirmed.

Wangila’s vehicle was the one that made a wrong U-turn.
