Congolese national Vatha Bahati Josue was on Thursday arraigned over the murder of Kevin Omwenga. He becomes the third suspect to be linked to the murder of Omwenga.

Josue was arrested on Wednesday over links to the murder of Omwenga on August 21 at Galana Apartments, Kilimani, Nairobi. He was arraigned before Magistrate Sinkiyian Tobiko.

Police sought seven days to detain him to complete investigations into the murder but the magistrate ordered that he be released on Ksh100,000 cash bail.

According to the police, the suspect’s phone, a Samsung A10, was used to communicate with the deceased and the other two suspects, Chris Obure and Robert Bodo Ouko, charged with the murder.

The police say that Josue was in constant communication with the suspects before and after the killing.

Police believe that the killing was orchestrated after a deal went south.

Obure and his bodyguard Ouko denied murder charges yesterday before justice Mumbi Ngugi. They were detained awaiting bail ruling on Monday.

Today, police pressed more charges against the suspects.

In a charge sheet presented before the court, Obure is to be charged with two criminal counts among them failing to secure a firearm contrary to the firearms act.
