City lawyer Assa Nyakundi, who is a suspect in the shooting of his son, was receiving visitors at one of Kenya’s top hospitals for the fourth day Thursday as initial results of an autopsy contradicted what he told police.
Mr Nyakundi was still in his air-conditioned room on Ward LMF on the third floor of Nairobi Hospital, where patients have their rooms to themselves, receiving friends who came to inquire into his health.
An armed police officer stood outside the room, but that was as far as being in custody went.
The State has already passed the 24-hour period stipulated by the Constitution on how soon a suspect should be arraigned in court.
Mr Nyakundi’s lawyer, Mr Cliff Ombeta, insisted to the Nation that his client was still in custody.
