Keroche vs Omar Lali: Keroche boss Tabitha Karanja has gotten her wish against her late daughter’s partner Omar Lali. This is after the court ruled that based on Karanja’s concerns against Omar, the inquest to her daughter’s death would be held in Nairobi.

In October, Ms. Karanja had told the court that she was afraid of Omar. Ms. Karanja and her family told the court that Lali is an influential person among boat owners and operators as well as beach boys in and around Lamu Island.

She then argued, through senior counsel James Orengo, that since boat transport is the most reliable means of accessing Lamu Islands, there is a real and well-founded fear in the family that they may not travel to and from the Islands to attend and participate in the inquest proceedings at Lamu without a significant threat to their safety and life.

This ruling came after the court dismissed an application by the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to transfer the inquest to Lamu.

Principal magistrate Zainab Abdul ruled it was important to consider the interest of Tecra’s family who were the most affected by her death and were comfortable having the inquest done in Nairobi.

“I find that the proper court to hear this inquest is Milimani Court in Nairobi and not Lamu. Although the deceased sustained injuries, which led to her death in Lamu, she died in Nairobi and the nearest court where she died is here,” ruled Ms Abdul.

Ms. Abdul further said that the law allows police to file an inquest on suspicious deaths, suicides and suspected homicide as happened in the death of Tecra. Keroche vs Omar Lali.
