The High Court has adjourned Willie Kiimani murder case after the presiding judge raised concerns over the lack of enough space to accommodate all the parties.
Justice Jessie Lessit has said the small tent provided by the Judiciary can not hold everyone because they have to adhere to the Health Ministry’s directives on social distancing. Directive aimed at containing the covid-19 and curbing further spread.
Judge Lessit apologised over the inconvenience. She had asked the Judiciary to provide a 100 capacity tent but was instead given the small tent.
The hearing has been pushed to Monday next week to give the Judiciary enough time procure a bigger tent to accommodate all parties.
The case was meant to resume hearing today after a long break occasioned by Covid-19.
Four Administration Policemen and an informer are charged with the murder of human rights lawyer Willie Kimani, his client Josephat Mwendwa and a taxi driver Joseph Muiruri on June 23, 2016.
The bodies of the three victims were found floating in River Ol Donyo Sabuk.
The prosecution had lined up 43 witnesses and only two had not testified prior to the adjournment.
Nicholas ole Sena who is heading the probe will resume his testimony against the accused. He laid the basis of the case before he was stood down by Justice Lessit to a tend the burial of a colleague.
