A Nairobi businessman who shot Ranalo foods proprietor William Osewe and another in his company has denied the charge of attempted murder after appearing before magistrate Charity Oluoch this morning.
Tom Oywa Mboya denied the two counts of attempted murder, even as the prosecution asked fot stringent bail terms, including a restraining order to protect the two victims, particularly Osewe, who is still in the High dependency unit of a city hospital.
In addition, the prosecution demanded that Mboya be compelled to remain within the court’s jurisdiction and special care be taken that he may not interfere with the witnesses involved in the case.
There will be a mention of the case on 23rd December for further directions, with the hearing set for 1st Feb 2017 with bond set at 500,000 or 300,000.
Mboya, a licensed gun holder shot Osewe at an eatery in garden estate on Thursday 1st December in what he says was self defence. He alleges that Osewe attacked him, accusing him of having an affair with his wife.
