Former KTN editor Aaron Ochieng is not yet out of the woods after negotiations  to have the matter settled out of court stalled.

He told a trial court, through his lawyer , no settlement has been reached and ” we require one month to continue with negotiations.”

Ochieng was updating the court on the progress of the out of court negotiations after he admitted having dragged the young anchor into the scandal.

“The statement that I made was false in regard to the motor vehicle  KBY 831K, I wish to state to court and Ms Biira that I lied… I regret the amount of damage that my actions have had on Ms Biira and her family, I do regret my actions and I want to publicly apologize to Ms Biira and this court …I wish to confirm to discuss with Ms Biira the possibility of solving this matter out of court,” he had read from a signed statement.

Ochieng had in January 2017 denied two counts of stealing and handling stolen property. He was charged with stealing a motor vehicle belonging to  KTN news anchor Joy Doreen Biira. He has been out on bond.
