Mombasa - A Mombasa court was informed Tuesday that the late Alexander Monsoon was found lying unconscious behind the Diani police report desk.
Rosemary Keeneway, a family friend to the Monsoons, recounted how she received a phone call from Alexander’s mother on May 19, 2012 requesting her to bail her son who was being held at Diani Police station.
Rosemary then requested her husband, William Keeneway, to follow her at the police station later but could not bail Alexander because the OCS in charge of the police station was not present at the time of his arrival.
“My husband later came to help get Alexander's car that was being held at the Daini police station,” said Rosemary.
She narrated that on arrival at the police station, they found three police officers who informed her that the KES 20 000 bail could only granted in the presence of the OCS who was not present.
She recalled that her husband later informed her that Alexander was lying near the police desk unconscious.
