While making a ruling on  Wednesday morning, Wakiaga told the media to stop speculating about the unravelled matters regarding the slain businesswoman Ms. Kimani.

“The court is adding one rider to these guys of the media, from now that is before me that these statements which you keep telling about what you have done and what you have not done, the money which has not been collected and recovered, from now you stop writing them, okay?” warned Wakiaga.

Justice Wakiaga has taken over from Judge Jessie Lesiit who withdrew from the case on Monday, under unknown reasons and directed another judge to hear the case.

Irungu and Maribe have been charged with the murder of Ms. Kimani whose body was found at her Kilimani apartment on September 19 and have since pleaded not guilty to the charge.
