“A caring lady (from Makueni) who takes a gentleman in distress to the hospital cannot be a murderer. She deserves bail and justice,” the county boss.

Her lawyer and Makueni MP Dan Maanzo said his client was a “harmless woman of repute caught up in issues she had nothing to do with”.

He also noted that she and Kabaka were great friends and the former was instrumental in his becoming the area senator.
