Mathe wa Ngara to spend five more days in custody.
Police have been allowed to hold a businesswoman linked to drug trafficking and possession of ‘cookies and sweets’ for five more days pending investigations.
JKIA court senior principal magistrate Njeri Thuku on Wednesday ruled that the application by the prosecution which sought to detain Nancy Endoveria Kigunzu for five days was merited.
“Having gone through the submissions by both parties, I find that the prosecution application to detain the respondent is merited. The suspect is to be detained at Muthaiga Police Station for five days to allow police to complete their investigations”, the magistrate ruled.
The Court also directed that Endoveria be escorted to the hospital for medication after her lawyer said she had been denied access to her medication.
The case will be mentioned on August 28 for further orders.
Endoveria who is popularly known as “Mathe Wa Ngara” over her alleged drug deals, was arrested by police on August 21, 2023, at around 1530 hrs in the CBD.
