Friday, April 26, 2019 - City lawyer Assa Nyakundi was arraigned in Kiambu law courts on Friday and charged with manslaughter for accidentally killing his son, Joseph Nyakundi.
The renowned criminal lawyer shot his 29-year old son, Joseph Nyakundi, on March 17th near his Muthaiga home.
He then rushed him to Aga Khan Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The two were headed home at around 1am from International Christian Center (ICC) Church along Mombasa Road.
Mr. Nyakundi claimed that his gun accidentally went off while inside the car but investigations suggest the shot was fired from outside the car.
The manslaughter charge attracts a lesser penalty than murder which would have seen him rot in jail for the rest of his life.
Speaking to the media recently, Mr. Nyakundi said that he’s not afraid of going to jail because he’s has lost everything.
