Kelvin Omwenga’s murder: Businessman Chris Obure to be charged with murder


Businessman Chris Obure will  be charged with the killing of fellow businessman Kevin Omwenga.

High Court Judge Mumbi Ngugi dismissed his application that had challenged the decision by the DPP to press murder charges.

Justice Ngugi noted that the only court that can properly receive and unravel the many threads and permutations of a murder charge is the court which will hear the evidence.

“The applicant cannot purport to instruct the office of the DPP on whether to charge him or have him appear as a witness,” she explained.

On Monday, Obure had made an application to be a witness in the murder trial, saying he had been cooperating with detectives.


The court also heard that the CCTV footage that placed the businessman’s bodyguard Robert Bodo in the heart of the matter had been tampered with.
