Kericho crash: Bus owner appears in court

By: John Njoroge Jos ...

The owner of the bus that crashed and killed 56 people in Kericho and a manager were arraigned court on Thursday.

Cleophas Shimanyula, the owner of the bus christened Home Boyz and belonging to Western Crossroads Express Sacco, and Benard Shitiabayi, the manager of the sacco, appeared in a magistrate’s court in Molo but did not take plea after police requested to detain them in order to complete investigation.

Chief Inspector Festus Ondieki in his application asked Senior Resident Magistrate Samuel Wahome to allow police to hold the suspects at Londiani Police Station in Kericho.

The application was objected by the suspects’ lawyers who said it violated his client’s constitutional right to freedom.

“Despite sympathising with the bereaved families, my clients just like any other suspects have a right which cannot be carried with emotions,” said lawyer Ken Ochieng'.

The magistrate deferred the ruling on the application to Friday saying that he needed time to go through the submissions by both parties.

Ten rushed to Fort Ternan and Muhoroni Sub-County hospitals for first aid treatment.
