, NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 11 – A Kiambu court has ordered the release of Brian Kassaine, who was being investigated in the murder of Monica Kimani.
Principal Magistrate Justus Kituku however ordered him to report to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) every Thursday for two months to facilitate the investigation.
Kassaine, who has been in custody for 10 days, will also surrender his passport to detectives to ensure he does not travel out of the country.
“The suspect is informed that failure to comply with the orders, the police will be at liberty to seek a warrant of arrest from this court,” he directed.
“You will come back to court on 14th of December for further directions.”
Kassaine was arrested after detectives established that the prime suspect in the murder, Joseph Irungu alias Jowie, used his gun in an alleged attempted suicide bid after allegedly killing Monica.
Jowie and his girlfriend, Jacque Maribe, were arraigned in court on Tuesday and remanded until Monday when they will plead to murder charges.
Maribe, according to the Investigating officer’s affidavit told police that Jowie had asked Kassaine to “secure the gun” after the incident.
This happened on the night of September 20 at around 1am.
