A Kenyan on a manslaughter case (motor vehicle homicide) in Massachusetts was thrown out of the court room after he became out of order.
David Njuguna who is charged with manslaughter of a trooper had started criticizing his defense team and the judicial system in America, when Judge Janet ordered him removed.
He is being charged in the death of Massachusetts State Trooper but on the first day of trial, he had to be removed from court after he suddenly spoke out loud. He all the same apologized but ignored the judge’s order to stop talking forcing her to order court orderlies to remove him
Closing arguments were about to begin in Worcester Superior Court when 33-year-old David Njuguna of Webster said “There’s no need to go any further… “I’m very sorry for what happened.”
“I wanted to apologize for what happened but my attorney told me to wait and I’m very sorry your honor. I’ve been wanting to say that for awhile,” Njugnua said amid being cautioned not to talk but his sentiments landed on deaf ears.

Judge Janet Kenton told Njuguna she would not accept his sentiments because he wasn’t under oath. She then told him to take a moment and meet privately with his attorney, Peter Ettenberg.
Njuguna kept apologizing many times while saying; “I thought that I could trust the judicial system.”
“it was an accident,” “Am really sorry” Njuguna continued. “I just wanted you to know that I’m very sorry.”
The incensed judge ordered him to sit down, but he refused, so she had him removed from the courtroom for being out of order.
“Why are you people lying about everything? Oh my God, why are you lying?,” Njuguna shouted as he was escorted out by two court officers.
David’s fate still remains in the balance and it could as well be worse for its manslaughter, but we do hope that justice will prevail so that this Kenyan can continue pursuing his dream.
