Activist accused of assault

27 August 2012, 17:38 Steve Wambugu

Emotions ran high at a Nakuru  Court today when the hearing of a case in which  human rights activist Ann Wairimu Njogu has been charged  with assault  alongside her son Njau Njogu began.

Before senior  principal magistrate John Njoroge, Njogu’s father Mr. Peter Njuguna Njoroge  was cross examined by prosecutor Francis Chacha where he narrated how  the accused persons attacked him with kicks and blows moments after they differed  over a pit latrine that Anne had hired youths to dig within their compound.

He told the court that the event happened in broad day light on December 29th 2011.  He said that Anne informed her that the pit was being dug so that she could build a latrine for her mother but he was opposed to the same since there were 3 toilets in the compound.

He said that he did not see any need of building an extra latrine,  adding that he guessed that Anne was digging a grave for him owing to differences they have had since 2003 when her wife filed a case in court seeking to have their property shared out.

Njuguna 73, said that they have been having a bad relationship with both his wife and Njogu and that they have not been talking to each other for the last 9 years.

He said that in Tumaini , he has been living in a different house with his wife. It also emerged that he has sired two  children with two  of his house helps.

He informed the court that on the material day, he sustained serious injuries on the head, back and right hand and was treated  at the Provincial General Hospital  in Nakuru before he reported the matter at Milangine police station in Nyandarua county.
In a 2 hours examination by lawyer Jerusha Onganya  the lead consel among Njogu’s five other  lawyers,  Njuguna  gave  contradicting  statements  where it emerged that at Milangine police station , he only reported having being assaulted by Njogu’s  son only.
Looking at the counsel with tear soaked eyes, Njuguna said that the documents presented before court might have been tampered with in order to paint a different picture.

Hearing of the case was adjourned to November  2nd. Owing to time constraint. 3 other witnesses are expected to testify.
