Rally driver Maxine Wahome is scheduled to be charged with the murder of his boyfriend Asad Khan after the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) approved the charges.

Maxine is now expected to appear before a Nairobi court on Wednesday to respond to the murder charges following the approval of the charges by the DPP on Tuesday.

The decision comes following an order by the court to the Office of the DPP (ODPP) to file a report before the court clarifying if it intends to charge her with murder or not.

Prosecution had made an application to the city court seeking to close the file but was silent on the next process on the issue of Maxine.

The DPP also wants police to continue holding her at Kilimani Police Station for her to undergo a mental assessment before taking her plea to the murder charge on Wednesday.

Asad succumbed to serious injuries sustained in the house he shared with Maxine following a domestic row and it remains unclear what transpired and how he sustained the wounds.

It is believed the rally lovebirds were involved in an ugly quarrel inside Asad’s apartment at Preston Court in Kileleshwa in which he sustained serious injuries and lost a lot of blood.
