A 37 year old man has been charged in court with assaulting his pregnant wife after allegedly busting him in the act with another woman.
Justus Mati Mutua is alleged to have attacked his wife, Purity Koki Kiseru leaving her with injuries after she found him having sex with another woman on 26th August in Tassia area in Nairobi.
Apparently, the couple had parted ways a week prior to the incident having lived happily for less than a year. But on the said day the estranged wife went back to visit him without prior notification, only to find their house locked from inside.
But immediately she called the accused, he switched off his phone, making her to get suspicious. Police said, in devastation, she sat at the doorstep in wait for him to open the door. While at it, she kept shouting through the key hole, telling him she knew he was inside and was up to no good.
All the while, she vowed not to leave, prompting the man to open the door almost half an hour later. According to police, a furious Mutua came out, demanding to know why she was being arrogant and disrespectful, considering the two had went separate ways days ago.
An argument ensued, with Mutua beating up the complainant as he accused her of intruding his private life, yet she left him for being poor. As they fought, the other woman, whom Mutua claimed is his new lover, slithered out of the house.
Following the commotion neighbours came to intervene and took Koki to the hospital before reporting the matter to the authorities. Mutua was arrested and he denied the charge at Makadara Law Courts. He was set free on Sh20, 000 cash bail pending trial on 21st November.
