The prosecution, through Faith Kaberia and Abraham Mumo, made an application to oppose bail and bond and requested the hearing be deferred for 14 days to allow the witness protection agency to assess and place the victim and her family under protection.

He will remain in custody pending a ruling on the prosecution application to be delivered on Thursday, September 28.
