The prime suspect in the killing of three children of the Kapsoya Kanu MCA aspirant James Nyambane on Tuesday failed to take a plea in connection with the brutal murder by an Eldoret High court after it emerged that he had no lawyer to represent him.
Eldoret high court judge Justice George Kimondo ruled that plea taking by the suspect, Enock Onsanse, 26 be deffered to a later date pending a request by the Deputy High Court registrar to get the accused a lawyer.
He directed that the suspect be remanded at Eldoret GK prison until June 14when he will be brought back to court to take plea in the killing of the three children, Clifford Nyamweya ( seven), Dan Nyamweya ( five ) and Glen Ongaki ( three).
The bodies of the three kids who were reported missing on May 13 were found floating in River Nzoia along the Uasin Gishu/Trans Nzoia Counties border.
I have just received information from the deputy registrar of the high court to the effect that the suspect is yet to be availed a lawyer to represent him in the murder , therefore the suspect will not take plea for now until the issue of legal representation is addressed, ruled Kimodo.
