Justice for Jenelyn Kennedy

Magistrate firm with decision

Magistrate Ganaii, after deliberating on his Section 96 statement of the District Court Act read out on 17th of May, said there was sufficient evidence to commit the matter to a higher court.

Kaiwi was charged with the wilful murder of his partner and mother to his children, Jenelyn Kennedy, in 2020.

In his Section 96 statement, Kaiwi had submitted that the autopsy report did not pinpoint the cause of death of his late partner, Kennedy.

Magistrate Ganaii, while responding, said the medical report did establish a cause of death.

Kaiwi refused bail

Acting Judge Paul Tusais handed down the decision this afternoon.

In his decision, Acting Judge Tusais said  the accused Bhosip Kaiwi is likely to interfere with the witnesses in this matter and that the case consist of serious assaults that is why the bail will not be granted.

Bhosip Kaiwi applied to the National Court for bail on four grounds. That he had pre-existing asthmatic condition prior to his arrest which he has not been receiving medical attention at the Bomana Correctional Facility clinic.
