Court to Rule on whether to Admit Evidence in late Lawyer Kimani’s Case

Share

The High Court will on Thursday, April 4, will rule on whether confession evidence in the lawyer Willie Kimani, Josephat Mwenda and Joseph Muiruri trial will be admitted in court.

The trial of four administration police officers and a police informant who allegedly admitted to the 2016 Killings of the three will resume before Justice Jessie Lessit at 9.am.


The confession was allegedly given by Peter Ngugi, the fifth accused person in the case. The prosecution claims Ngugi voluntarily confessed to the Murder detailing how and where the executions were committed.

However, the defence has objected to the admission of the confession.

The defence wants the confession- both in video and written format – disallowed on grounds that Ngugi is uneducated and was therefore not able to understand what he was made to sign or confess to.

The prosecution says the confession is key to the trial and will assist the Court in making a proper determination in the trial.
