Through Lawyers Alex Muteti and Wangui Gichuhi, the DPP has filed for murder charges.

Nyakundi is accused of killing his 29-year old son Joseph Bongoko in March last year.

According to the Lawyer, he had approached his home in the company of his son when he withdrew his gun for protection purposes.

He claims he accidentally pulled the trigger killing his son who was sitting at the back seat of the car.

It was however determined that from the trajectory of the shot, it was executed from the rear right side of the vehicle where the defendant was sitting.

He filled a petition seeking to stop murder charges to be leveled against him citing malice from the prosecution team.

An autopsy result pointed out the cause of his son’s death to be a chest injury caused by the impact of the bullet.

The ruling of the application made at Kiambu Law Court will be made on March 26th this year.
