A pilot facing a charged over a traffic offense yesterday asked a court to throw out his accuser's case.
In the case, Aquinas Burisa Orenge, a Kenya Airways captain, is charged with careless driving. Through a lawyer, Orenge told a Kibera court the charge the police brought against him was an afterthought.

He said the evidence an aide to Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi gave against him is prejudicial and will deny him a right to fair trial. Orenge is charged with driving on the wrong side of a road on the night of February 16. His lawyer said the witness failed to recall the time of the accident and had been fully indemnified.
