A Kibera court yesterday issued a warrant of arrest against a police officer who is accused of deserting duty. The prosecution made an application before senior principal magistrate Lucas Onyina for the arrest of Peterson Magembe. The court heard that Magembe has been at large and efforts to trace him have been futile.
Police records indicate Magembe went on annual leave but has not resumed work until now. Onyina directed that the matter be mentioned on August 27. After the warrant is extracted, the police will arrest Magembe to take a plea.
