Nancy Kigunzu Indoveria, recognized in business circles as ‘Mathe wa Ngara,’ and currently under investigation for alleged involvement in drug trafficking, has been remanded for an additional five-day period, a measure sanctioned to facilitate the conclusion of prosecutorial inquiries.
In a courtroom session convened at the JKIA Law Courts on the present Wednesday, Kigunzu conveyed to the tribunal her struggle with anxiety, beseeching the court for a provision that would grant her a respite from the confines of the police station, permitting her to pursue necessary medical attention.
Senior Principal Magistrate Njeri Thuku decreed that Kigunzu is well within her entitlement to receive medical care whenever necessary, acknowledging this as her prerogative.
To ensure the implementation of this decision, the Muthaiga OSC received directives to arrange for the businesswoman’s accompanied transfer to the medical facility.
“In no event shall it be acceptable that your purported confinement to a medical facility coincides precisely with a court appearance. Such maneuvers are to be eschewed. While she retains the right to access requisite medical treatment, this shall only be conducted under the vigilant supervision of law enforcement personnel,” pronounced the court.
In an affidavit formally submitted to the court’s scrutiny, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) affirmed the presence of more than merely cannabis at Kigunzu’s premises.
The affidavit expounded that a broader investigation necessitates engagement with specialists for the analysis and assessment of consumable items suspected of containing illicit substances.
Kigunzu faces allegations of evading apprehension during a law enforcement operation conducted the preceding week, ultimately being apprehended within the environs of Nairobi’s city center on Monday.
