Police Officers Who Involved With Murder Of 2 Brothers In Dilemma As 10 Lawyers Withdrawn From Case

Ten lawyers representing six police officers charged with the murder of the two Kianjokoma brothers have withdrawn from the case.

The move to quit disrupted the proceedings of the case on Tuesday, August 31. Four of the six officers requested the court to defer plea-taking to enable them to engage other lawyers in the murders of Benson Njiru Ndwiga and Emmanuel Mutura Ndwiga.

The court, in a ruling issued by High Court judge, Daniel Ogembo, ruled that it would allow them to get state advocates to represent them in the case.

The defence counsel had filed the application on the basis that there was no present representative of the six officers, during the autopsy of the two boys, arguing that the results of the autopsy, therefore, lacked admissibility.

Ogembo also dismissed an application by the six officers that sought to have the bodies of the two boys exhumed for an independent autopsy.
