A Kenyan woman protests outside a court in downtown Nairobi on May 14, 2009. A Kenyan court today sentenced Thomas Cholmondeley, the scion of the country's foremost family of white settlers, to eight months in prison for shooting dead a black poacher on his ranch. The Eton-educated aristocrat had been convicted of manslaughter over the death of Robert Njoya in May 2006 but Cholmondeley has only admitted to shooting dogs on his 22,250-hectare (55,000-acre) Rift Valley ranch.
