The court has ordered that the suspect who has been linked to the killing of lawyer Elizabeth Koki continues to be detained in police cells for 14 more days.

Principal Magistrate Bernard Kasavuli directed that Christian Kadima be held for the two weeks to allow police to complete their investigation into Koki’s murder.

Kadima appeared before the Mavoko Law Courts on Monday after he was apprehended in the weekend.

The case is scheduled to be mentioned on January 25.

Koki’s family was represented in court by a battery of lawyers led by Caroline Kamende, the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) Vice President.

Kadima, who holds a Nigerian passport, was reportedly seen leaving the victim’s house in Syokimau on Thursday before Koki’s body was discovered by a house help in her bedroom.
