Why Caroline Mwatha’s Suspected Killers Did Not Take Plea

The trial into the alleged murder of former Dandora based activist Caroline Mwatha failed to kick off on Wednesday as it was planned.

This is because the suspects implicated in the murder could not take plea due to the fact that they lacked Legal representation.

The Four, Betty Akinyi, Michael Onchiri, Dale Richard Ramoya and Alexander Gitau were charged with two counts of murder of the Dandora-based activist and her unborn baby.

Justice Stella Mutuku directed that the matter be mentioned on Monday.

The murder of Caroline Mwatha shocked the nation after she went missing only for her lifeless body to be discovered a few days later at City Mortuary.

On February 12, detectives arrested six people in connection with the death of the activist who fought against police brutality and extrajudicial killings.

According to the police, Caroline died from a botched abortion process, a claim that Caroline’s family and her fellow activists have refuted.
