Ethiopian and Namibian envoys accused of role in murder trial

Julius Anini at the Milimani law courts yesterday
A lawyer in the Venezuelan envoy murder trial yesterday accused the Ethiopian and Namibian ambassadors of playing a role in the arrest of his client. Lawyer Katwa Kigen, who is representing the former first secretary of the Venezuelan Embassy Dwight Sagaray, said ambassadors Luise Gurbert and Juana Carlos insisted on having Sagaray charged with the murder of Olga Fonseca.

Yesterday’s proceedings also saw a gardener, who still works at the Venezuelan Embassy, testify against Sagaray and his four co-accused. Julius Anini told Justice Weldon Korir that he knew the Ethiopian and Namibian ambassadors and that they came to act for the embassy when he was arrested with Sagaray for investigations into Fonseca’s murder. Asked whether he knew of former Ambassador Gerardo de Silva “wanting to rape” one of the embassy drivers, Anini could not confirm or deny.
