The court was told the suspect, who had gone under after committing the offence, only returned to the country to renew his passport.

The magistrate, after hearing both prosecution and defence, said the suspect can only be secured in a GK Prison and not at Muthaiga Police Station as requested by his lawyers.

“I order that you will remain at the GK Prison until your travel documents are verified,” said Gichohi.
