With Nyakundi still sick, investigations into his case will be widely affected meaning Kenyans and his family in particular will have to wait a little bit longer to learn what truly inspired on the fateful Sunday his 29-year old son lost his life.
Nyakundi claimed that he his son as they got home from church “while holstering his gun”.
A postmortem report indicated that the shooting happened outside the car .
The suspect’s lawyer, Sam Nyaberi, told the court his client is still receiving treatment but is in a fair condition.
“My client is getting better and might be discharged when he gets well,” Nyaberi said.
Makadara senior principal magistrate Angelo Kithinji directed the matter to be mentioned on April 24 to establish whether Nyakundi can appear in court.
The investigating officer had on April 4 told the court that he had been unable to record a statement from the “incoherent” lawyer.
He said that when he visited Nyakundi in hospital, the lawyer could not speak well.
“I visited the suspect and I can confirm that he is still sick and will need more time to see if I can record his statement,” the investigating officer had said.
