Man accused of killing politician’s three children to be held longer – PHOTO
The case of a suspect in the killings of an MCA aspirant’s three children has been delayed on the request of a prosecutor.
State Counsel Zachary Omwenga urged an Eldoret court to give them more time to amend the charges.
He said prosecutors are collaborating with other State agencies because of the magnitude of the case.
He said his application was prompted by preliminary findings, which indicate that the children were murdered.
Kapsoya MCA candidate James Ratemo’s three boys — Clifford Nyambane, six, Dan Nyamweya, five, and Glen Ongagi, three — disappeared on May 13 on their way to Eldovil SDA Church before their bodies were found a few days later in River Nzoia.
Police said investigations have established that the children were murdered somewhere else before being dumped in the river.
The suspect in the killings, Enoch Onsase, a brother of Mr Ratemo and the last person seen with the boys before they disappeared, had earlier been accused of abduction.
Mr Onsase did not take plea following the request of the State prosecutor.
