The lady Sophie Njeri, who took a bold move to record a video of 5 police officers harassing a woman passenger along Thika superhighway, will have to wait for 7 more days to know fate.
She was arrested on February 6, 2019, for recording the video leading to online rallying by Kenyans on #ReleaseNjeri.
The rallying paid dividends as she was released on a Sh10000 cash bail and was to appear in Makadara court today Friday February 8, 2019.
The lawyer representing her, Mr John-Lewis Onkendi said that the DPP office has requested 7 more days to go through his client's files.
"We had the meeting with the police here at Kasarani, they inform us that the DPP has not yet reviewed the file so they cannot now give us an answer. They have given us 7 more days to get back to us," said the lawyer.
"The DPP will be going through her file, review it, basically that means they want to check and verify facts whether what the police is saying is true," added the lawyer.
Sophie was charged with obstruction in the execution of duty, a move her lawyer says is contrary to section 103 of the National Police Service Act.
The lawyer also indicated that EACC wants to meet with Sophie to get more clarity on how she was handled by the police.
The lawyer further said they are looking at an option of filing a civil proceeding against the police but they will focus first at the situation at hand.
