Cop linked to the murder of 13-year-old Yassim Moyo released on Ksh.1M cash bail

Police officer Duncan Ndiema has been released on a Ksh. 1 million cash bail after pleading not guilty to the murder of 13-year old Yassim Moyo.

Ndiema was ordered to provide two contacts who should be close relatives and not interfere with any of the witnesses.

Ndiema was arraigned before High Court Judge Luka Kimaru on June 23, 2020, he pleaded not guilty. He was remanded at Capitol Hill Police Station to await hearing of his bail application.

Police officer Duncan Ndiema has been released on a Ksh.1M cash bail after pleading not guilty to the murder of 13-year-old Yassim Moyo.

Initially, Ndiema’s lawyer pleaded a suspension of the hearing claiming the cop had been admitted at Mbagathi Hospital awaiting COVID-19 test results.

The court, however, deferred the plea after establishing the accused never visited the said hospital and was in Uthiru, approx 15 kilometers from Mbagathi Hospital.

According to the investigating officer, the management of Mbagathi Hospital said they had not treated the accused as he had alleged.

The deceased was shot while standing on the balcony of their house in Huruma Estate, watching the police implement the now elapsed dusk to dawn curfew.

He was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Mr. Hussein Moyo, Yassim’s Father, while speaking to CNN, said he supported the curfew but how the police officer handled it was wrong.

“My child was shot while he was on the balcony at home. He was not on the street. I support the curfew, but how the police officer handled it was very wrong,” he said as he cried for justice.

The latest comes as acts of police officers have sparked riots in many parts of the country. Barely a week ago, residents in Eldoret burnt down a police house after a cobbler was shot dead while on his way home.
