Third Suspect in the brutal murder of Gatunguru secondary school principal arraigned in court

A third suspect in the brutal murder of Gatunguru secondary school Principal Samuel Mbogo was today arraigned in Murang’a high court.

The prosecution presented Francis Kimani before high court deputy registrar Victoria Ochanda but he did not take plea as the prosecution applied to be given more time to take him for a medical check-up and provide him with a lawyer.

The suspect was remanded at Murang’a police station until next Monday when he is expected to take plea.

Kimani who was arrested at Gakurwe market on Monday will be charged with murder alongside the principal’s wife Alice Mugechi and her co-accused Samuel Gitu who have pleaded not guilty before Justice Kanyi Kimondo.

Mugechi and Gitu are both remanded at Murang’a prison, as their case awaits hearing on July 30 this year.

The prosecution is said to be pursuing two other suspects that are still at large.

The 50 years old principal was murdered on May 12 at his home in Gakurwe village, in Murang’a East sub-county and his body dumped into his salon car that was found abandoned near his home.

Two of his children who are said to have witnessed the murder have been taken to witness protection. Assigned lawyer and medical checkup.
