Six more officials of the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) appeared in Court Thursday over the registration of a car used by Al-Shabaab militants during the 14 Riverside terror attack in Nairobi.
The suspects include Nderitu Irving, Stephen Kariuki Mbaka, Anthony Mjaka Kadu, Jacqueline Githinji, Charles Wangocho Ndungu, and Cosmas Ngeso.
They were arraigned on a miscellaneous application as the prosecution sought more time to detain them pending the conclusion of investigations.
The prosecution claims the six were arrested “due to their possible involvement in aiding and abetting the terrorist attack” that left 21 people dead.
However, the application did not take off because the accused were presented past court sitting time.
Senior Principal Magistrate Martha Mutuku directed that the accused be remanded. The miscellaneous application will be determined today, Friday, February 1.
This brings to seven the number of NTSA staffers arraigned in Court over the issuance of a number plate for the car used by the gunmen in the 14 Riverside terror attack.
First to be arrested was Augustine Mulwa Musembi, who appeared before Milimani Court Senior Resident Magistrate Caroline Muthoni Nzibe on Wednesday.
The Magistrate allowed an application by the prosecution to detain Musembi for 30 days.
