Arrest warrant issued against former police boss

22 January 2015, 09:37 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - A Mombasa court has issued a warrant of arrest against a former Police Officer commanding Makupa police station.

Principal magistrate Justus Kituku issued the warrant after Chief Inspector Peter Mbua failed to appear in court on Tuesday to enable the court to establish the mystery surrounding the disappearance of two vehicles.

The alleged vehicles are suspected to have disappeared in a warehouse in Tudor where 314 pieces of ivory were nabbed and suspected ivory trafficking kingpin, Feisal Mohammed, and four other men charged in court over the same.

“The police officer should come to court in person and explain before this court why he should not be punished for disobeying a court order,” said Kituku.

He further directed the Urban police OCPD to execute the arrest warrant and avail the officer in court.

The court issued the arrest warrant after the senior state prosecutor, Alexander Muteti, made an application to adjourn the proceedings stating that they were not ready to proceed because Mbua failed to respond to the summons issued.

However, lawyer Micheal Oloo objected the application made by Muteti and an application to be supplied with all witnesses to enable him prepare for the case.

“Am afraid this confirms my fears the state wants to prejudice the judicial system. The matter should proceed as scheduled,” said Oloo.

The case was set for hearing on January 30, 2015.
