Eric Maigo’s Murder: Prime Suspect Anne Adhiambo Pleads Guilty

The prime suspect in the murder of Nairobi Hospital Finance Director Eric Maigo, Anne Adhiambo, has pleaded guilty to the murder charges. 

The charges were read to her three times in Swahili when she appeared before High Court Judge Kaanyi Kimondo to take a plea on Thursday; she repeatedly said, “Ni Ukweli.”

The prosecution told the court that the suspect is an adult of sound mind.

The court informed her of the potential consequences as she entered her plea and gave her time to speak with her lawyers.

“Nakupa muda zaidi Ndio uweze kuongea na wakili wako ambaye Yuko mahakamani mzungumze wakuelezee vizuri kile unachoambia mahakama …,” the judge said.

The matter has now been referred to the Kibera law courts where she will be expected to take plea again.

Meanwhile, she will be held at the Langata women’s prison pending the mention of the case on November 8.

Adhiambo, was arraigned last Wednesday, with the prosecution requesting that the suspects be held until the investigation is completed.

At the time, the court heard that CCTV footage and blood stains from the murder scene, both of which are important in the case, were yet to be analyzed.

She was arrested at Olympic in Kibra after efforts by detectives were backed by members of the public who provided intelligence on her whereabouts.

Adhiambo stands accused of being behind the gruesome murder of Maigo, whose lifeless body was found in his house bearing 25 stab wounds.
