An international warrant of arrest has been issued for a suspected American drug trafficker who escaped from custody before trial.
Kibera chief magistrate Uniter Kidula issued the warrant against Kelma’s hubby Timy Hakim and is yet to be executed by the Interpol.
Hakim broke out of Mathare mental hospital where he had sought treatment for mental illness shortly after being charged with trafficking cocaine worth Ksh9 million.
A preliminary investigation report filed to the court stated Timy was helped by fellow mental patients and people who used to visit him to escape. The report said Hakim used a rope ladder made by one of the patients to scale a perimeter wall at the hospital.
The rope ladder and a hook found at the crime scene have been taken for analysis. The investigations are still on going.
