In Summary
  • Ogach appeared frail and had to rely on the assistance of officers, but the deputy registrar had him taken to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital for treatment when he vomited in court.
  • He was arrested in Nakuru on Saturday last week in a hospital after a failed suicide attempt.
  • Robinah Moraa Nyandaro was found murdered at her rented house in Miti-Moja Estate on the outskirts of Eldoret town.
  • The Deputy Registrar said that the case will be mentioned today for further directions.

A prime suspect in the killing of an Eldoret police officer was taken to hospital on Monday after vomiting in court due to sickness.

Joshua Ogach seemed too frail to respond to an application by the investigating officer for his further detention for five days for police to complete the investigation.

“The accused person cannot respond to your application since he is in so bad a condition that he cannot even stand on his own. The police officers attached to Langas Police Station should take him to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital," said Deputy Registrar Grace Sitati.


It is believed that constable Robinah Moraa Nyandaro, who was based at Naiberi Police Station in Ainabkoi Sub-county, was killed by her estranged lover last Wednesday.

Her neighbours found her body the next day in a pool of blood in her rented house in Miti-Moja Estate on the outskirts of Eldoret town.

Caretaker Stanley Some said that at around 10am on the fateful day, he saw a white Toyota car parked at the gate. He said he later saw the occupant at Ms Moraa's house.
