A 20-year-old Kenyan man has admitted to killing his grandmother in a horrific manner.
The suspect, named as Abdulaziz Ali Swaleh, appeared before Mombasa chief magistrate Vincent Adet and said the court that soon after joining the Illuminati sect, he received orders to kill his grandfather.
“It’s true l killed her. I’m sorry, l ask for forgiveness but l only did it after joining Illuminati.”
The murder suspect further revealed that he was mentally disturbed after carrying out the act, and now needs drugs to control his anxiety.
“My mind is not okay, l feel disturbed and this is because there are drugs that l often use, l need them.”
Preliminary investigations indicate that the suspect murdered his grandmother on January 21, 2023, in her sleep after she declined to give him money to purchase narcotics drugs.
Police Constable Mohammed Mapenzi attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), through prosecution counsel Hillary Isiaho, informed the court that the accused person was a suspect in a murder incident where it is alleged that he murdered his grandmother by slitting her throat using a kitchen knife.
Ruling on the case, the magistrate ordered that the suspect to be detained at the central police station for 14 days to allow police complete investigations.
He further ordered the suspect to undergo a mental assessment test.
