Nairobi - Australian police have charged a former presidential candidate with the murder of his three-year-old son, according to Australian publication News.Com.Au.
Quincy Timberblake was arrested by police Tuesday morning in relation to the death of his son Sinclair in Kallangur, in Brisbane’s north.
Police were called to the townhouse about 2.30am on June 18, after ambulance officers were unable to resuscitate the boy.
Police allege the child had “significant” internal injuries and investigations are ongoing.
Timberlake, a political aspirant and controversial figure in Kenya, was founder of the PlaCenta Party in Kenya, the name formed from the combination of “Platinum” and “Centraliser”.
According to the report, Timberlake was granted asylum in Australia and left Kenya to save his life after being arrested and tortured while in custody on charges that were later dropped in the aftermath of the March 2013 General Elections.
His wife is former television presenter Esther Arunga and it is not yet clear whether she too will face charges for the death of their son.
