Families of slain victims cry foul over delayed case

Two families whose daughters were slain by one suspect are crying foul over the slow process the case was taking in court.

The families of the slain victims Nancy Naragai and Emma Wanyota who were allegedly murdered by Mustafa Idd said they were frustrated by the lengthy process of seeking justice for their deceased.

The late Nancy was murdered in 2017 but up to date justice has not been served. The accused is out on bond two years after the murder.

A few months after his release in 2019, the suspect was again arrested for allegedly killing Emma Wanyota at their home in Moi’s Bridge.

The two families complained that the cases were dragging in court, adding that they have been unable to secure legal representation   which has further frustrated their search for justice.

“We are appealing for a pro-bono lawyer to assist us because we cannot afford to get one on our own,” they said.

Wanyota’s mother, Beatrice Luseno, expressed disappointment on how the case was being handled in court.

“Since September 30th, the accused has not taken plea with the proceedings being postponed week after week,” she lamented.

They said they were now financially strained and were to keep up with coming to court for the cases. They were speaking, Thursday, after the case was once more postponed.
