Private investigator Jane Mugo on Friday morning revealed before a Nairobi court that her life is in danger.
Through her lawyers Cliff Ombeta and Dunstan Omari, she told trial Magistrate Martha Mutuku that her life is threatened by the investigating officers in the case and needs court’s protection.
“Our client’s life is in danger as she is afraid of the investigators in the case. We ask for the court’s protection as we intend to reveal the context of the threats,” said the lawyers.
However, the magistrate directed the matter be mentioned at 12 pm today in order to hear the threats claims in camera.
At the same time, Mugo confirmed that she surrendered her gun and the certificate to the investigators at Kileleshwa police station on October .
The court further heard that the spy’s finger prints have been taken and recorded a statement with the DCI as earlier ordered by the court.
Omari informed the court that the current charges facing the accused were in court again in 2014 but dismissed by another court.
The prosecution has confirmed that they have since supplied the defence with all witness statements and exhibits that they will be relying on.
