from Jamhuri Police Station who were on

patrol and rushed to the scene.

of blood in the suspect’s house .

locked the door and slit his throat in

an attempt to commit suicide prompting

the officers to break the door and

accessing entry into it.

He was rushed into a nearby hospital

for medical attention.

the offense of murder contrary to

section 203 as read with section 204 of

the penal code.

Kimani who is a father of a young

family and the sole breadwinner, was

arraigned before Milimani Senior

Principal Magistrate Zainab Abdul on

miscellaneous application.

Police when they presented him in court

they sought to detain him for more days

as they complete with their

investigations before officially

charging him with murder.

Prosecution that the investigation team

needed more time to contact the Egyptian

Embassy and notify the deceased
