The woman suspected of killing Eric Maigo, the financial director of Nairobi Hospital, Anne Adhiambo, is set to face new charges of murder today.
Judge Kanyi Kimondo of the High Court issued an order for the suspect to have two weeks to speak with her attorneys before accepting a new plea.
That was after Adhiambo initially entered a guilty plea to the murder accusation of Eric Maigo brought against her before Kimondo.
After hearing the charges three times in Kiswahili, she acknowledged committing the offense.
At that point, Justice Kimondo cautioned the defendants about the repercussions of entering a guilty plea.
When he asked the accused if she was aware of the accusations made against her, she responded in Swahili with a “ndio.”
“In the interest of justice, I have given her time to consult with her advocates before pleading again, “Judge Kimondo said.
Attorney Samuel Ayora represented Adhiambo.
The case was sent to the recently formed Kibera High Court, where the suspect will hear the charges read aloud to them.
Remanded to Langata Women’s Prison is Adhiambo.
She was prosecuted after an age evaluation revealed she was older than eighteen and the prosecution declared her fit to face trial.
