Kenyan Lawyer Willy Kimani's Murder Case Suffers Major Setback

Police informant, Peter Ngugi's legal representative has told the High Court that his client's confession to the murder of Willy Kimani, a human rights lawyer, Kimani's client, and a taxi driver, should not be admitted as part of evidence because its recording was not procedural. The three were kidnapped after leaving court on June 23, 2016. All three bodies were found a week later in a river.
