The family of a woman allegedly murdered by her husband who two years ago in a hotel in Gilgil is crying foul over the case that has taken too long to start.
The family of Rhoda Mumbi Mutua now wants the CJ to intervene and have the case that is currently under the High Court in Naivasha hastened.
Nicholas Cheruiyot Koskei who works with the United Nations (UN) has been accused of murdering his wife on the 8th of July 2017 in Jacaranda Lake Elementaita hotel in Gilgil.
This came even as the High Court set three days to listen to the case where Cheruiyot is alleged to have killed the mother of two boys before dumping the body in a bath tub.
Cheruiyot and the wife Mumbi had retreated to the lodge to solve their marital problems when the latter was found dead in the bath tab before police arrested him for the murder.
A relative who declined to be named said that the case had been postponed so many times leaving them in fear as the accused was also out on bond.
She said that nearly two years after Mumbi was found murdered, the investigating officers had continued to drag the case by seeking adjournment on flimsy grounds.
“The suspect in the cases has been walking scot-free and chest thumping as we the family of Mumbi continue to suffer,” she said.
However, High Court Judge Richard Mwongo set three days when the case will be heard following a pre-trial held at the Naivasha law courts.
The judge said that the case will be heard between the 2nd and 4th of July as the prosecution waited for cyber crime report from the investigating officers.
