MOMBASA, Kenya, Feb 15 – Two police officers have been jailed for seven years over the 2014 killing of a schoolgirl in Kwale.

Inspector Veronica Gitahi and Constable Issa Mzee were convicted by a Mombasa court on Monday for manslaughter by Justice Martin Muya.

The court ruled that they were guilty of killing 14-year old Kwekwe Mwandaza when they raided her family home, but rejected a request that the two officers compensate her family.

A public prosecutions official had applied to have the officers compensate the deceased girl’s family on Friday last week, leading to a delay in their sentencing.
