Killer KDF soldier Peter Mugure in court today

The Kenya Defence Forces soldier major Peter Mwaura Mugure will face the court of justice on Monday in Nanyuki.

Mugure allegedly hacked to death his wife and two children last week.

Mugure is expected to answer charges over the death of the three in the civilian court.

It is alleged that his estranged wife met her death when she had gone to visit Mugure who is based in Laikipia.


Judge Lucy Mutahi ordered a 10 minutes recess before she gives her ruling.

Investigators have requested the court to grant them 21 more days as they seek to conduct further investigations.

Mugure and another suspect called Collins will remain in police custody in Nanyuki for 21 days.

“For the interest of justice, the first accused shall be detained at Nanyuki police station for 21 days and the other accused will be detained at Naromoru police station for 21 days,” said Mutahi.

The case will be mentioned again on December 9, 2019.
