Assault suspects released

03 May 2013, 12:41 Wangui Joseph

Three men accused of assaulting Mukurwe-ini MP Kabando wa Kabando during the last general elections have been subjected to an 18-month community service by a Mukurwe-ini court.

John Chira Njeri, Paul Ndegwa Kania and Joseph Muiruri Ndiang’ui were found guilty of the offence by Senior Principal Magistrate Wendy Kagendo.

They were charged that on March 4 2013 at Tambaya Primary School in Mukurweini District jointly with others not before court assaulted Kabando wa Kabando thereby occasioning him actual bodily harm.

They were also charged with creating disturbance in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace by abusing and throwing stones to the MP the same day. The accused persons were represented by lawyer Mbao Gitari.

The magistrate however acquitted them of the second count. She said there was no enough evidence indicating that the accused personed breached peace.

The trio will be working at Tambaya dispensary and Maganjo Chief’s camp for the stipulated time as they also pledged to follow orders to be issued by a probation officer.

The prosecution adduced nine witnesses where the court noted that most of them were MP’s supporters.

In a police statement, the MP said the young men assaulted him in the eyes of his two children. He sought treatment at Tambaya dispensary where he was attended and discharged.
