A woman who was suspected to be involved in the murder of Nairobi Hospital Acting Finance Director Eric Maigo has been set free.
On Monday, September 25, a Nairobi court released Cynthia Lusega Andalo after the prosecution found insufficient evidence linking her to Maigo’s murder.
“After investigations, we have forwarded the file to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, and there was no sufficient evidence to charge the respondent herein,” the court was told.
Following the latest development, the court ordered the miscellaneous file closed and Andalo set free. Andalo was arrested after CCTV footage captured her with Maigo at a popular club along Ngong Road on the day he was found dead.
Maigo was found dead in a pool of blood at his Woodley Estate residence in Nairobi last week. Detectives said he was stabbed twenty five times using two different knives.
According to analysis, the two knives had the same set of fingerprints. He had been stabbed on chest, neck and face.
His hands, though, did not have any cuts, which detectives say was a sign that he did not fight back or that he might have been poisoned before the murder.
An investigation by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) found that Maigo’s killer could be a minor. This was after CCTV captured a young girl escaping from Maigo’s home through the back door and over the fence.
The girl, identified as Ann Adhiambo, and who is believed to be between 15-17 years had blood stains on her clothes. Detectives are yet to trace her.
