A British national and former Wananchi Group CEO Richard David Alden charged with killing his girlfriend now want his case heard expeditiously.
He told the court that he is currently jobless with no source of income.
“The accused desires to proceed with the hearing since he’s in the country without a job or any source of income” Boris told the court.
The case failed to proceed after Richard was told that the trial judge was attending a judicial forum in Mombasa.
Alden through his lawyer Pravin Bowry, told the trial court that he is ready to proceed with his trial and blamed the prosecution for delaying the trial.
Last week DPP withdrew the criminal case which he was accused of having a firearm without a license.
While applying to withdraw the case DPP told the court the want to withdraw the matter to allow further investigations over the matter.
Mr Alden was arrested after investigators ruled out an initial report that the woman had shot herself while playing with a pistol.
Prosecution through Ms Catherine Mwaniki , had opposed the bond had told the trial court that the suspect “cannot be trusted” as he gave conflicting accounts following the fatal incident.
High court later released him on bond.
