15 October 2014, 15:04 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Mukurweini MP Kabando wa Kabando’s younger brother, Caesar Thiari Kariuki has been found mentally fit to stand a murder trial.

Thiari has been undergoing mental assessment at Mathari Hospital in Nairobi since August after he allegedly killed his mother at their Mukuwreini home, Nyeri.

State counsel, prosecutor Festus Njeru Njue told Nyeri High Court Resident Judge, James Wakiaga that the accused was fit to face the trial according to a psychiatric report from medics.

He was charged with the murder of Rose Wachera Mwangith on July 27 at Kaini village.

He was represented by lawyer Kimani Njuguna while the family was represented by lawyer Kamotho Thuo.

Lawyer Kimani complained to the court that the prosecution was yet to supply him with statements and other documents that could be used during hearing of the case.

He said the documents were useful for preparation of the defence.

During his appearance, the courtroom was packed to capacity as Mukurweini residents had turned out in large numbers to catch a glimpse of the suspect.
