Earlier, the prosecution led by Senior State Counsel Njagi Nderitu expunged some controversial evidence in the case after the defence protested that they had not been supplied with crucial e-mails which they said are important in the case.

Nderitu accused the defence of trying to delay the case by asking for copies of e-mails and their attachments.
