Stripped Kayole Woman Forgives 6 Men Who Assaulted Her

The case against six men accused of stripping a woman and violently robbing her in Kayole in December 2014 may be withdrawn. This is after the complainant in the case filed an application before court to have the case withdrawn saying she had forgiven the men.

The prosecution however rejected the application to have the case withdrawn, saying the matter was of public interest, and that the charge of violent robbery is a serious offence in the country.

An argument between the prosecution and defence lawyer, Samuel Ayora, ensued after the prosecution resisted the application to have the case withdrawn, adding that there was no sign language interpreter in court since one of the accused was deaf and dumb. The prosecution also said the investigating officer was new to the case and informed the court that the previous officer was on leave.

An argument between the prosecution and defence lawyer, Samuel Ayora, ensued after the prosecution resisted the application to have the case withdrawn, adding that there was no sign language interpreter in court since one of the accused was deaf and dumb. The prosecution also said the investigating officer was new to the case and informed the court that the previous officer was on leave.

The complainant, Regina Nyambura, who was allegedly stripped naked and assaulted on the evening of December 17 said that appearing in court was taking too much of her time, hence the reason for her wishing to withdraw the case. She told the court that, “I just want to forgive them; they are just like my brothers, and I have a lot to do including providing for my children. I’m not expecting any payment for that.

I believe they have suffered enough and learnt their lesson.” The court however ruled that there is no urgency in the matter to have the case withdrawn as the complainant wished. The complainant was urged to consider the charges before withdrawing the matter. Michael Kamau, Zachary Gitonga, Kelvin Njuguna, David Kinuthia and Lawrence Kuria and Hosea Kassim were charged with violently robbing Regina Nyambura of her mobile phone, 61 eggs and Sh950, all valued at Sh10,290. The matter will be mentioned on March 11 when the application to have the case withdrawn will be heard.  -Pkemoi Ng’enoh
