BY CORRESPONDENT,10TH JAN 2020-Drama ensued in court on Friday after Peter Mugure who is accused of killing his wife and two children declined to take plea.

The first charge was read out but instead of replying appropriately, Mugure said he had an issue he wanted the court to address.

It is the same  confusion that forced Nyeri High Court Judge Jairus Ngaa to enter a plea of not guilty.

Justice Ngaa then ordered the prosecution to supply the accused’s lawyer Njuguna Kimani with witness statements ahead of the January 23 pre-trial conference.

Kimani took over the case from Cliff Ombeta.

Mugure has been in custody for more than a month.
