A British national who allegedly shot a woman in his Karen home has been charged with being in possession of a firearm illegally.

Richard David Alden is accused of the murder of Ms Grace Wangeci Kinyanjui.

He was allegedly found in possession of Glock pistol in circumstances which raised reasonable presumption that the said firearm had been used in a manner prejudicial to public order.

The ex-Wananchi CEO was also charged with being in possession of 34 rounds of ammunition.

Alden appeared before Nairobi Chief Magistrate Daniel Ogembo and denied the charges.

He is also accused of making false document without authority.

State Prosecutor Eddy Kabebe opposed his release on bail claiming that he has no fixture bond.

Before his arrest Alden has secured another job in Canada.

Mr Kadebe said “of now, we do not know where he will be residing.”

Chief Magistrate Daniel Ogembo will rule on the matter tomorrow.
