Man arraigned on charges of violently stealing CID officer's gun

04 August 2016, 11:44 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - A suspected thug has been arraigned in a Nyeri magistrate’s court charged with robbery with violence.

Joseph Kang’ethe was charged with robbing a Criminal Investigating Directorate police officer, Jonah Kimanzi Nzau of his ceska pistol which was loaded with 15 rounds of ammunition valued at KES 58,000.

Kang'ethe allegedly committed the crime on June 13, 2009 jointly with others not before court, at Othaya Approved Grounds.

The court heard that the assailants were armed with an AK47 rifle, axes and metal bars which they used to fatally wound the officer.

However, Kang’ethe denied the charges while appearing before Principal Magistrate Phillip Wambua.

The prosecution, while objecting his release, prayed for more time to consolidate the present case with a pending criminal case.

The court heard that the Kang'ethe has been wanted since October, 2015 after jumping bail of KES 1 million.

He was arrested in Nyeri town following a sting operation by combined efforts of police officers near Kiawara slums, after being linked to a spate of other armed robberies in Nyeri and neighbouring towns.

The case was slated for hearing on August 10, 2016 but the suspect was remanded at King’ong’o GK prison.
