"There are three charges that he faces; one is impersonation, murder if he was in any way involved with Chege's murder," the family's lawyer Danstan Omari said.
They would discover the body of their late relative at the Kenyatta National Hospital Mortuary a few days later, on January 10, labelled as an unknown African male.According to reports, the deceased was admitted to the Kenyatta National Hospital KNH on December 1, 2022, as a referral from St Francis Community Hospital.
