Kololo, a Muslim father-of-two, shook silently in the dock as magistrate Johnstone Munguti sentenced him during the two hour judgement hearing at a court in the coastal town of Lamu.
Mr Munguti said: ‘I must tell you that I am obliged by the laws of Kenya to sentence you to suffer death for the first count, that is for robbery with violence.
