While dismissing the senti- ments as “hypothetical”, the lawyers said the government was duty-bound to protect its citizens as required by the Constitution. Mr Kemo also said the sus- pects interfered with evidence on the night the politician collapsed and died as detectives discovered that the scene of the LINE-UP Suspects in murder suit Mr Paul Wainaina Boiyo Mr Christopher Lumbazio Andika Mr Andrew Karanja Wain- aina Mr Samuel Kuria Ngugi, Ms Esther Ndinda Mul- inge Ms Ruth Watahi Irungu crime had been swept. He said the investigators “later collected and analysed traces of a fast-acting poison” Mr Thuo allegedly ingested at Porkies Garden Restaurant in Thika Town. “The analyst established that a deadly poison led to the death of the politician ... Traces of the poison were found on his shirt and bottles of beer he was served on the night,” the prosecutor said. The accused may also be charged with destruction of evidence, he added. The prosecutor said the six may interfere with key witnesses among the 53 employees of the restaurant, who are wellknown to the suspects. The defence lawyers criti- cised the prosecutor, saying the pillar of any criminal case was the presumption of innocence until proven otherwise before a court. They invoked sections of the Constitution they said protected the suspects’ rights, including “threats to their lives”. The ruling on the bail will be made on March 20.
