    Kuna aina kuu mbili za hukumu ya kesi ya kuua


    1. Kuua kwa kusudia ambako mahakama lazima ijiridhishe bila shaka yoyote kwamba muuaji alikusudia (Prove beyond any any reasonable doubt) ndio maana makosa kama hayo huchukua muda mrefu sana...Hapa adhabu yake ni kifo kwa sheria za Tanzania (Murder case=death penalty)
    2. Ukipatikana na hatia ya Kuua bila kukusudia (Manslaughter) adhabu yake ni kifungo cha Maisha, (kukaaa jela kwa kipindi cha maisha yako yote yenye nguvu)

    Angalizo mni kwamba mambo ya sheria ni very technical and every case has its own merit. kwa mujibu wa Katiba ya Tanzania, Mahakama ndiyo imepewa mamlaka ya kutafsiri sheria na shauri....kwa kuangalia pia precedent (maamuzi mengine yanayofanana na shauri lililoko mbele yao katika mahakama za ndani au nje zinazotumia mfumo wa shria kama wa kwetu nk.

    dfn: the unlawful killing of a human being without maliceaforethought.

    Like murder, manslaughter requires that:

    • the victim has died, and
    • an act of the defendant's contributed significantly to their death.

    However, the final element that is required to establish murder, that is, that the defendant intended to cause death or grievous bodily harm or knew that their actions would result in death or bodily harm, is not present in a case of manslaughter [Criminal Law Consolidation Act 1935 s 13]. This is because the law recognises that there is a significant distinction to be made between a death caused as a result of a person's deliberate intent or recklessness and one that, although caused as a result of a person's actions, was not intended by them to result in such harm.
    Within the offence of manslaughter the common law recognises different categories of manslaughter. A distinction is often made between voluntary and involuntary manslaughter.
    Voluntary manslaughter occurs where all the elements for the offence of murder are met but liability is reduced due to mitigating circumstances such as provocation.
    Involuntary manslaughter involves the following categories:

    • Unlawful or dangerous act: death from an unlawful or dangerous act carrying with it an appreciable risk of serious injury is manslaughter where the defendant exposed the victim to an appreciable risk ofserious injury. A frequent example of this sort of case are the ‘single punch' assault cases, where the defendant's sole punch to the victim (intending to hurt but not to kill) results in their death. Where the victim has engaged willingly in the dangerous act, consent on the part of the victim to the dangerous act is not a defence. An example of this is R v Cato(1976) 1 All ER 260. In this case the victim engaged in injecting heroin with the assistance of the defendant. Both defendant and victim were responsible for measuring out their own doses with the agreement that they would then administer the shot to the other person.
    • Accidental death in the course of a felony: the death must be unintentional in the course of a non-violent illegal act, for example, when a person is killed in the course of a larceny. See R v Parmenter[1956] VLR 312 where the defendant shot and killed the victim whilst in his room intending to steal his gun. The defendant went into the victim's room believing him to be away from the premises. The victim was in fact in his room and a struggle ensued during which the gun was accidentally discharged, resulting in the victim's death. Because larceny is not a crime which a reasonable person would contemplate being likely to result in death, the offence was manslaughter by accidental death in the course of a felony. However, had the felony been armed robbery the appropriate offence would have been murder as this is a crime which could reasonably be expected to result in either death or grievous bodily harm.
    • Criminal Negligence: a very high degree of negligence is required – inattention or a simple lack of care is not sufficient. However, where behaviour is so reckless as to show a disregard for the life and safety of others this will generally meet the test of criminal negligence. For example, dangerous driving causing death (see Andrews v DPP (1937) AC 576). The negligent act must be a substantial factor in the cause of death, see R v Cato(1976) 1 All ER 260.

    Inategemea umeuwaje. Kuna mheshimiwa mmoja aliuwa watu wawili kwa gari lakini akapewa adhabu ya faini (kama nakumbuka vyema laki saba hivi!).

    mSISITIZO HAPO NI KWAMBA every case has its own meirt, nakubaliana na hoja (NA si desa la Amavubi) kwamba ni vigumu kujibu swali la sheria kama vile unajibu swali la HESABU

    ndiyo ni life imprisonment. however kila kesi huamuliwa kulingana na mazingira yake, hapo ndipo kwenye discretion ya majaji. kuna wengine wanapewa hadi mwaka mmoja, wengine miwili, mitatu, mitano, saba etc. sijawahi kuona manslaugter yeyote tz mtu kapewa life imprisonment. hapo ndipo utajua kuwa, kusoma sheria kama theory ni tofauti na kuifanyia sheria practice. professor wa law university of dsm atakwambia life imprisonment, lakini state attorney mwenye degree moja anayepractice haya kila siku anajua ambacho huwa kinaendelea mahakamani. studying law without practice is like getting married to a woman but you don't have sex with her.

    Kama tunakumbuka vizuri Ditopile hakuwahi kuachiwa huru ila kilichofanyika ni kubadili kosa lake kutoka kuua hadi kuua(murder) bila kukusudia(manslaugher) kosa ambalo linaruhusu dhamana. Hadi kifo kinamfika alikuwa nje kwa dhamana na si kwamba aliachiwa huru kwani kesi yake ilikuwa inaendelea. Nakumbushia tu!
