Location of Arrest:
Kawagware Shopping Centre #4, Nairobi
4 kg ivory and 4 kg hippo teeth
The prosecutor Mr. Musyoka on his part was ready to proceed and had 2 witnesses available.
The court took note of the fact that this is a 2018 case and observed a pattern where in one instance it is the accused persons who are not ready to proceed and in the next instance it is their counsel who is not ready to proceed. In response to this the Magistrate acknowledged that the delay is brought about by the defence and issued them with the last adjournment.
Since arraignment, not one person has yet taken the stand to give evidence.
