Lawyer Assa Nyakundi charged with son’s murder
Lawyer Assa Nyakundi, who is out on bond in the murder case of his son, was on Wednesday re-arrested and taken to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) headquarters.
Nyakundi, who had been charged with Manslaughter, will now be charged afresh with murder.
According to the Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti, he did not approve the previous file, which he says was a “conspiracy by detectives who were handling the case to subvert justice.
“I did not approve that file,” he said, “The officers who handled it are under investigation.”
The city lawyer is accused of shooting his son dead in his car under unclear circumstances, although in his defense he maintains that it was an accident.
He was charged with manslaughter on April 26 and released on a Sh 300,000 cash bail with an alternative of Sh 1 million surety bond.
His wife had earlier protested the manslaughter charge and appealed to the DPP to review the case.
