A woman who was accused of assaulting a 30-year-old mason over a cup has been released by a Kisumu court.

Mary Akinyi had been accused of attacking Jared Odida on February 13 this year at Dunga Beach after accusing him of stealing a cup.

Resident Magistrate Beryl Omollo yesterday freed Ms Akinyi after the prosecution failed to produce enough witnesses. 

Ms Omollo said the investigating officer who would have been a crucial witness did not testify.

Akinyi had been accused of attacking Mr Odida with a blunt object.
