The Ugandan maid accused of killing her employer and her son in Muhoroni, Kisumu, in June has denied the murder charges.
Jackline Auma today appeared at the Kisumu law courts to answer to charges of the murder of Elizabeth Achieng’, 26, and her three year old son Leonne Okoth.
Dressed in a purple checked shirt with a pink jumper, Auma tried to avoid the cameras as she denied both charges in a low tone.
Justice Phillip Ochieng said she is mentally fit to take the plea.
The hearing was delayed when the accused requested for the proceedings to continue in Kiganda.
She claimed she can neither understand English nor Kiswahili. She later agreed to take plea in Kiswahili after her lawyer’s intervention.
Auma through her Lawyer Joy Ayieta requested for a bail, but the judge declined.
