Forty five year old Titus Musila Katitu, will serve 12 years in prison and three years in probation.

Justice James Wakiaga said the four years the former police officer spent in court should also be deducted from the sentence.

This means Katitu, will serve about eight years since he was taken to court in 2014.

The former cop and Githurai residents had pleaded with the judge to hand him a non-custodial sentence.

But the judge ruled that his action of shooting Kenneth Kimani was unjust.

“The sentence will serve as a stern warning and a deterrence to other police officers for unlawful use of firearm.”
