Suspects Of Killer Brew Denied Bond

An Embu court rejected an application to release the two suspects, Anne Wangare and Lucy Wanja on bond.

The two suspects have been charged with causing the deaths of 39 people who consumed the deadly brew last month.

The two had previously been charged in April, 2014

They denied the charge before Justice Hedwig Ogundi.

The duo are being charged together with three other people not before the court.

State Counsel Walter Wanyonyi opposed bond applications by the two arguing that the matter was serious.

The presiding Judge directed that the State Counsel will be the one to take charge for the formal application of the bond.

 

3 other suspects, Denis Mutegi, Muthoni Kimani and Boniface Kimani are wanted to face similar charges.

Already, a warrant of arrest has been issued against the three.

The case for the five will be heard on 3rd December this year
