The prosecution intends to prefer murder charges against a suspect accused of killing an agent of Starehe Member of Parliament Maina Kamanda.

The court heard that the suspect, Daniel Kuria Ngariu confronted a group of other young men who were pasting posters for Kamanda on walls of buildings along Juja Road at around 6.00 am on April 26 2017 and attacked one George Ndege.

The court further heard that Kuria was in a group that was pasting posters for Pangani MCA Peter Wahinya Njau.

“The group of attackers were alleged to be armed with pangas and knives at the time of the attack.During the attack George Ndege suffered injuries on the chest and lower jaw, another victim Peter Muchiri was cut on the right lower leg and as Ndege was fleeing from the attack crossing the other side of the road he was hit by an oncoming mini-bus Reg. no KBY 839G,” an affidavit sworn at the Milimani court by an investigating officer Sgt. Charles

The two victims were rushed to hospital where Ndege was pronounced dead,the court heard.

Police are now asking for 10 days for the suspect to be remanded at Pangani police station to identify and detain a motor vehicle that was used in ferrying the attackers and record witness statements among other investigations.

Ndege and colleagues were in the campaign team allied to Maina Kamanda’s Starehe parliamentary re-election, prosecutor Catherine Mwaniki said.

Police officers arrested the suspect after a complaint of murder.
