Malawian envoy son murder case set for September

Malawian envoy son murder case set for September

The prosecution has lined up five witnesses to testify in the murder case of the former Malawian Ambassador to Kenya Marcel Chirwa’s son due to take place at the Limuru law court.

Making the submissions on Wednesday at the court, the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) said it had enough evidence to enhance the prosecution of the case.

The case could, however, not proceed immediately as the magistrate who was acting on it, Timothy ole Tanchu, had been transferred leaving the matter before Limuru Principal Magistrate George Oduor.

The three murder suspects; Benard Wanjala, Gabriel Wafula  and Edwin Wanyonyi appealed to the court to hasten up the case saying there had been a lot of postponements.

The former Malawian Ambassador to Kenya Marcel Chirwa, the father to the deceased, was present during the submissions.

The case will be heard on September 16th, 2015.

Dennis Chirwa, a third year communication student at St. Pauls University, was stabbed near the institution’s Limuru campus after a night out with friends in October last year.

He was also robbed of his mobile phone and other personal effects.

Before his coming to Nairobi, Chirwa was an online journalist who focused on political stories.
