Alexander Monson: Kenya police officers to go on trial for murder of British aristocrat


Naftali Chege, Charles Wangombe Munyiri, Baraka Bulima and John Pamba were accused of killing Monson, the son of Lord Nicholas Monson, who died in 2012 after allegedly being beaten in police custody.

Monson, who was 28 at the time, died after being arrested outside of a nightclub at the Diani beach resort on suspicion of smoking bhang, a type cannabis.

It was claimed Monson had died of a drug overdose, but an independent postmortem commissioned by his family found injuries to his scrotum, defence wounds to his arms and a serious injury to the back of his head. A toxicology report also suggested that he had not taken drugs at the time of his death.

Mr Monson’s family argued that he had been in good health and had not been addicted to any substances at the time.
