British Kenyan pilot Alistair Llewelyn, who was arrested after being caught on camera assaulting a policewoman, will spend more time in remand after a Kinangop court ordered him to surrender all his travel documents, some of which are currently in the UK.

Alistair, who grew up in Timau, has been on remand for the last six days after being charged with two counts.

Firsty, that on February 21 in Ndunyu Njeru town, Kinangop, he assaulted Police Corporal Mercy Wandera, and secondly of creating a disturbance on the same day by calling the police officer a stupid corporal.


Cash bail was set at Ksh250,000 or a bond of Ksh750,000 by the magistrate, Senior Resident Magistrate Martin Mutegi, along with two sureties who must be Kenyan citizens. An additional condition was that he surrender his travel documents to the court and that he must remain in custody until these documents are verified.

However, Llewelyn’s travel documents, including his passport, are currently in the UK where they are being used to register a birth certificate for his new-born daughter.

The pilot’s lawyer, Stanley Kang’ahi, told the court that his client’s documents would be presented in court after a few days.
