BY NT CORRESPONDENT.

A man who sensationally linked Deputy President William Ruto’s office to the murder of businessman Jacob Juma is fit to stand trial.

Douglas Nyakundi, who also claimed to have worked at DP Ruto’s office said he had vital information but wanted money so that he could speak up.

He wrote a letter to activist Boniface Mwangi and demanded money for exchange of that information.

It is then that he was arrested and on Tuesday charged with attempting to extort an unspecified amount of money from Mwangi.

According to the charge on diverse dates between November 16 and 24 at Fatima court in Kilimani area, he tried to obtain the money from the activist by pretending that he had sensitive information concerning the murder.

He denied the charge and was freed on a Sh50, 000 cash bail.
