Maxine Wahome Being Probed For Murder In Boyfriend’s Assad Khan Death

Celebrity rally driver Maxine Wahome is now being investigated for the murder of her late boyfriend Assad Khan.

Following the death of Assad Khan, state prosecutor James Gachoka informed Milimani senior principal magistrate Bernard Ochoi that circumstances in the matter have changed following the death of Khan.

“The circumstances in this investigation have changed following the death of Asad last December. Maxine is now being investigated for murder and grievous harm. I request the matter to be mentioned in 14 days,” Gachoka said in court.

He added that the police are yet to receive DNA results and other crucial reports from the government chemist.

Even so, Wahome’s lawyer, Steve Kimathi, said his client has complied with the court directions and that she has been reporting every Thursday.

Khan’s family has hired lawyer Cliff Ombeta to represent them in the case.

“We have written to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to further investigate some areas we feel as a family need to be covered,” Ombeta said.

The magistrate directed that the case be mentioned January 30, 2023 for further directions.

He also directed Wahome to continue reporting to the investigating officer every Thursday.

On December 12, 2022, Assad was fatally assaulted at their Kileleshwa home.

After the incident, he was admitted at Nairobi Hospital and later transferred to Avenue Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries December 18, 2023.
