Tobiko drops Wamalwa assault case

27 February 2014, 18:01 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Director of Public Prosecution DPP Keriako Tobiko has dropped charges against Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa due to lack of evidence.

The DPP said that on reviewing evidence linked to the case in which the deputy chief whip of the national assembly had been charged with assault and causing public disturbance, he found no reason to prosecute him.

Wamalwa together with five others had been charged with causing fracas at a funeral in October last year.

He and the others had been accused of causing the melee, which resulted in a huge fight, over remarks made which disparaged  former finance minister Eugene Wamalwa.

" On reviewing the evidence at hand, it is apparent that the charges against the respondents is wrong, considering that it is not they who begun the fracas, a statement from Tobiko read.

It is alleged that a certain Rashid Mohammed used derogatory language in addressing the gathering at the funeral, thus starting off the fracas.

Mohammed has been ordered arrested and charged over the incident.

" I order the re-charging of Mr Mohammed over the incident and ask that the case be moved forward as swiftly as possible.
