In the case, Kandara MP Alice Wahome moved to court to challenge the constitutionality of the decision to appoint and include Badi into the cabinet and its committees.

Meanwhile, the six police officers accused of allegedly causing the death of the two brothers from Kianjokoma in Embu County want to be granted bail saying there is no compelling reason or evidence as to why they should be denied same.

Appearing before Justice Daniel Ogembo, the defense team led by lawyers Danstan Omari and Cliff Ombeta argued that the six police officers be released on bail saying they were not subjected to an inquest but were charged, due to public pressure.

However, the prosecution opposed the grounds tabled by the defense saying they have strong and irrefutable evidence that points to the accused persons’ guilt.

The prosecution further said the accused are police officers still enjoying all powers and privileges and could easily influence witnesses.

The ruling on the bail application will be delivered on 1st of October.
