, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 28 – Nairobi magistrate Martha Mutuku will on Monday rule on whether to allow police two more weeks to analyze items taken from journalist Walter Menya.
The Director of Public Prosecutions had asked the court to allow the police two more weeks to complete analysis of the items at the government chemist and cyber crime investigation.
Menya’s lawyer Nelson Havi however opposed the application and instead asked the court not to agree with the application as the items being analyzed were unlawfully taken from his client.
The DPP through State Counsel Daniel Karuri insisted the State is yet to make a decision whether to charge Menya.
Menya, a reporter at a local newspaper was arrested for reportedly soliciting a bribe for a story.
Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet had said Menya was arrested in the city centre when receiving a Sh50,000 bribe from a person he did not disclose.
