Ruth Kamande became the topic of discussion after she was crowned Miss Langata Prison and got the attention of many Kenyan men. But unknown to many, the uncle of the man she brutally killed has revealed shocking details about the beauty queen.
Ruth is alleged to have stabbed her 24-year-old boyfriend, Farid Mohammed, to death on 20th September 2015 at the deceased’s house in Buru Buru.
She was presented to court this past Tuesday for the hearing of her murder case. The deceased’s uncle, Edward Gatonye, took to the witness stand to reveal shocking details about Ruth.
Gatoye told the court he sensed danger in Ruth-Farid’s relationship when he visited his nephew at his Buru Buru house and went to Farid’s place after he failed to reach him via his phone. Gatoye asked Farid why his phone was off and he told him Ruth had blocked it after discovering several old letters from women.
Ruth angrily left the Gatoye and Farid in the living room and locked herself in the bedroom. Farid confesed to his uncle that Ruth was forcing him to let her stay with him. Gatoye also told the court that Ruth and Farid had only dated for two months.
The deceased’s sister, Serah Waithera, was also called to testify and she told the court her brother’s relationship with Ruth was characterized with all sort of stuff to make someone worried.
“She (Ruth) came to my workplace and introduced herself as my brother’s girlfriend. From then on she would complain to me when they had problems but my brother would deny their relationship. One time I advised her not to force the relationship.”
Serah was quoted by the Star telling the court.
The case was adjourned after the witnesses gave their statements and the presiding judge, Jessie Lessit, set November 25th as the date when the trial would resume.
