The magistrate directed the prosecution to supply Njue with statements from the additional witnesses.

Njue has maintained the school was duly accredited and registered by the Ministry of Higher Education Science and Technology in February, 2012 to offer laboratory technical courses

He claimed courses offered at the collage were later approved by the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec).

“My client had no business seeking approval from Kenya Medical Laboratory Technicians and Technologists Board (KMLTTB),” John Abwour, his lawyer said.

KMLTTB officials, however, insist the college has no capacity to offer medical laboratory course. The hearing will resume on July 29.
