Meru’s ‘James Bond’ denies charge of attempted suicide

A man who clung on Raila Odinga’s helicopter last week was Monday arraigned in court where he denied a charge of attempted suicide.

Julius Mwithalii pleaded not guilty of attempted suicide before senior resident magistrate Anthony Munene at Maua law Court.

The court has ordered that he be subjected to a mental check up.

He is scheduled to appear before the same court on Friday February 3, 2017.

After the dangerous chopper ride, Mr Mwithalii was dropped at Athima Primary School grounds after the pilot made an emergency landing.

He managed to alight and escaped unhurt more than 15 kilometres from Maili Tatu grounds where the chopper had taken off.
