Update on Lawrence Warunge, the University Student Accused of Killing His Family in Kiambu

Few months ago, the country was thrown into a fierce state of debate and fierce reactions after a shocking incident in Kiambu County where a young man, reported to be a student at a local university, allegedly wiped out his family.

Lawrence Warunge and his girlfriend were arrested in connection to the gruesome murder of four members of their family plus a farmhand who was present at the time of the heinous act.

However, Lawrence was not charged in court after the court received a preliminary report indicating that he was not fit to stand trial for the killing of his family.

But now, there is a new update concerning Lawrence Warunge's case as the directorate of criminal investigations (DCI) has come out to break its silence on the status of the case.

As Nation reports, the DCI has updated that a psychiatric examination at Mathari hospital in Nairobi has revealed that the suspect is now fit to stand trial and answer to allegations facing him.

"LAWRENCE WARUNGE, charged with killing 5 people in Kiambu, found fit to stand trial following a report from Mathari hospital, DCI says," the report said.

This means that he may be presented in court in the following days.
