A 53-year-old man has been charged with robbery with violence, in relation to the carjacking of Peter Kenneth’s wife.
Simon Muthee Ritho was accused of robbing Ann Wanjiru Kenneth at gunpoint on August 6 at Kibagare way in Gigiri. He is alleged to have stolen a Land Rover Discovery vehicle, two Samsung Note 3 phones valued at 170,000 shillings, Nakumatt smart cards and other valuables worth Ksh 6.3 million.
Mr. Muthee denied the charges before Milimani chief resident magistrate Daniel Ogembo on Tuesday.
He was remanded until Friday 26th when a ruling on his bail application will be delivered. The prosecution opposed bail application on grounds that he was arrested on August 8 at malaba border and, therefore, poses a flight risk.
Ann Kenneth has been listed as a witness in the case.
