I don’t understand doctor's report, deputy OCS tells court

By Renson Mnyamwezi | Feb 21st 2019 | 1 min read

A senior police officer yesterday caused laughter in court when he confessed that he did not understand the contents of a postmortem report.

Mwatate Deputy OCS John Mapea told Resident Magistrate Emily Nyakundi that the language used in the report by the doctors was difficult for him.

“It is true that I was present when the postmortem examination was conducted at the Voi County Referral mortuary by the doctors. Your honour it is difficult for me to explain the postmortem report or interpret it because the language used is ambiguous. The author of the report is better placed to interpret it and not me,” Mr Mapea said.

He had been asked by the Directorate of Public Prosecutions Prosecutor Jethron Okumu to explain what he knew about the postmortem.

The officer was testifying in a case in which Chrispin Mwashighadi is charged with killing Jackson Mwakio by dangerous driving.

Mwashighadi is charged that on July 16 last year at Mwatate along the Mwatate-Wundanyi road being the rider of motorcycle, he dangerously and without care knocked down and caused death of Mwakio.
