A suspect teacher from Machakos Esther Nthenya Muli has been released from Kilimani police cells after almost 2 days of police interrogations.
Madam Esther was being held over the sickness of Machakos Senator Boniface Kabaka.
On Monday, Kilimani DCI officers were permitted to retain Muli for questioning for 7 days. It was suspected that the senator had been poisoned with Mada Muli being the key suspect but tests conducted ruled out the earlier thought.
The secondary school teacher in Wote who was represented by Makueni MP Dan Maanzo had spent time with the senator at an apartment in Nairobi’s Kilimani estate on Thursday afternoon before he developed complications and was rushed to the hospital.
“As we speak she is now at home. The police had no reason to hold her after test results revealed that the senator was not poisoned,” Maanzo revealed to Standard.
Police records indicate that Kabaka drove himself to a private apartment last Thursday afternoon and booked apartment No 306. which was not normal to a person of his status.
Minutes later, Kabaka (The Senator) was joined by Muli. “From the apartment room, they ordered by telephone, from the nearby 3Dee Restaurant, drinks and food, which were brought and served by the apartment’s employees,” said the investigating officer.
At night, the senator abruptly fell sick, dropped down, and became unconscious. He was later driven to Nairobi Hospital where he is yet to recover from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
