Nairobi - Officials in Kenya have charged the first secretary of Venezuela's embassy for the murder of that country's acting ambassador to Kenya.

Dwight Sagaray was charged in court on Monday with the murder of acting Venezuelan Ambassador Olga Fonseca. He pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutor Tabitha Oyua also charged Mohamed Ahmed Mohamed Hassan, who has gone into hiding, with Foncesa's murder.

Oyua said that on the night of 26 to 27 July the two suspects murdered Fonseca. The prosecutor said others he did not name were also involved in the killing.

Judge Florence Muchemi issued an arrest warrant for Hassan and remanded Sagaray into custody until his bail application is heard. Venezuelan officials previously agreed to waive Sagaray's diplomatic immunity so that he could be charged.
