Self-proclaimed private detective Jane Mugo, on Wednesday, November 24, failed to appear before Nairobi Chief Magistrate Susan Shitubi for the hearing of a case where she was charged with threatening to kill two people at different times.

Her lawyers Mr Otieno and Mr  Mwangi told the court that she underwent a knee procedure and she could not appear in court for the hearing.

"Your honour, my client called me this morning saying she is unable to attend court after the doctors recommended that she takes a bed rest after a knee procedure," Otieno said.

The State Counsel Alice Mathangani who was ready to proceed with the hearing of the matter asked the court to order the lawyers to produce a medical report to ascertain if indeed their client is unwell.

Shitubi then ordered that she produces a medical report in court by December 16 2021.

Mugo, who was arraigned in a Nairobi court in 2019 is facing charges of threatening to kill Patrick Mugasia Kefa and Deepa Shah.

In the first charge, police said the investigator drew her pistol and threatened to kill Kefa on August 15, 2015.

The second offence allegedly took place at Kyuna Close in Spring Valley on February 4, 2019, where she threatened to kill Shah.

She is out on a cash bail of Ksh200,000 for the first charge and Ksh100,000 for the second charge.
