Jubilee MP fails to stop rape case

03 December 2015, 21:12 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The move by an MP to stop a case in which he is accused of rape has fallen on deaf ears.

Imenti Central MP Gideon Mwiti has been trying to stop a case in which he is accused of raping a woman in his office taking place but the move has officially fallen on deaf ears.

Speaking Thursday at the Nairobi Law Courts, Justice Weldon Korir ruled that Mwiti’s allegations can only be proved at the trial level.

The MP had claimed that the criminal trial against him would not be carried out fairly because the woman in question was being represented by lawyers under the Victim Protection Act.

He had stated that if allowed to continue in the same vein, the lawyers would take over the role of prosecuting the case instead of leaving it to the prosecution.

He further claimed that evidence in the case was tampered with and he would not receive a fair hearing.

The MP had moved to the High Court seeking to stop his prosecution and obtain orders stopping the start of the trial but judge Korir stated that the seriousness of the claims meant that he would be left with no choice but to let it go onto trial.
