Former State House Digital Director Dennis Itumbi will know on September 15 whether will defend himself in a case where he is charged with making false document on alleged assassination plot targeting Deputy President William Ruto.
Appearing before Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku, Itumbi's lawyer Katwa Kigen urged the court to rule that his client has no case to answer.
Itumbi and his co-accused are facing charges of making a false document and publishing a false statement.
The prosecution had called eight witnesses.
The accused allegedly authored and posted a letter claiming that powerful government officers meeting at Hotel La Mada in Nairobi had planned to assassinate Ruto.
The prosecution urged the magistrate to rely on the evidence produced before court and put the accused on their own defense.
