Businessman Chris Obure challenges murder charge


Businessman Chris Obure who is set to be charged with the murder of Kevin Omwenga has moved to court, challenging the murder charge.

In an application filed before the High Court, Obure argues that he would serve better as a state witness rather than an accused person in the murder case.

In the same application, he also appears to throw his body guard under the bus, noting that CCTV footage showed Bodo breaking into his office and retrieving the murder weapon.

He also denies any knowledge of his bodyguard using the gun kill the late Owenga.

According to Obure the charge of murder preferred against him is unconstitutional and an abuse of the court process.

Ballistic results from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) show that the ceska pistol registered to Chris Obure was used in the scene of crime, with fingerprints positively traced to Bodo.
