Willie Kimani Murder Case:The Willy Kimani murder case against four police officers has dragged in court taking a slow dive over the past two years. The ascension of Justice Jessie Lessit to the Court of Appeal had threatened to delay the case further with Chief Justice Martha Koome allowing the judge to continue hearing the matter. Since 2016, 44 prosecution witnesses have taken the stand, detailing the events that led to the death of the three and the ultimate dumping of their bodies in a river at Oldonyo Sabuk until their decomposing bodies were recovered one week after their disappearance.
