Teenagers accused of killing taxi driver arraigned in court
Four teenagers arrested for carjacking and allegedly killing a taxi driver in Nakuru’s White House estate were on Thursday given ten days by a Narok Court to remain free as investigations into the allegations continue.
The Narok Court said that the post morterm and further investigations will be conducted within the ten days as well as the age verification of the teenagers.
The Chief Prosecutor Charles Ouma requested for more time to conduct the investigations but the court granted him ten days.
The teenagers, while appearing before Narok Senior Resident Magistrate Wilbroda Auma, appeared nervous as the charges were being read to them.
Ouma, the prosecuting officer, proclaimed that the teenagers were briefly held in Nakuru and later brought in Narok.
The court heard that the four were driving a reportedly missing silver Toyota Premio car under the registration number KBN 120P with the registered driver Richard Kimomoru.
The identification card of the driver recovered from the crime scene indicated that the 36-year-old was a resident of Narok North.
“I’m calling for investigations of the minors, as there is no way the children could have raised money to execute such a calculated murder. They must be part of a gang that organises car heists,” said Kusio Naene, the Narok Taxi Association chair.
The court also heard that the four accused, who were arrested in Nakuru with the reportedly missing vehicle, stashed the body of the deceased in the car’s boot.
