UoN lecturer whose dead son was found in her house not fit to stand trial


The University of Nairobi lecturer whose son was found dead in their South B’s residence has been declared unfit to stand trial over her son’s murder.

The lecturer, Hannah Inyama, was arrested in October after her 13-year-old son’s dead body was found wrapped in blankets in their house in South B.

After the psychiatric examination she has been found  not to be mentally stable.

An investigating officer told Makadara’s chief Magistrate Heston Nyaga, that Psychiatric reports showed that Hannah was not in her right state of mind and was therefore unfit to stand trial.

The investigating officer said that psychiatrists had put the suspect on daily medication and will have to go back to the hospital for review later in November to check her progress.

“The suspect is not mentally stable so she is on daily medication until she gets well. She has her mental state review on 29th November, but as at now, she cannot stand trial,” said the investigating officer.

Magistrate Nyaga released Hannah who had been detained by police for ten days to her parents, with conditions that the suspect report to the police every Friday.
