A nominated Member of the County Assembly (MCA) in Bungoma has denied sexing, impregnating and assaulting a young woman for refusing to abort his child.
Elvina Lusaria alleges that Ford Kenya MCA Fredrick Musebe, attacked and injured her in a hotel near the Bungoma airstrip, as reported at Bungoma South Police Station.
According to Lusaria, a web designer based in Nairobi, the nominated MCA invited her to Bungoma where they stayed at a hotel for about three weeks.
“Our relationship is an open affair and we often spent in three other hotels in the outskirts of Bungoma town along the Kanduyi–Malaba Road. Musembe stays in my house whenever he is in Nairobi,” she told The Nairobian.
“When I told him I was pregnant, he asked me to terminate the pregnancy, but I refused. He came to the hotel later that evening and beat me up,” claimed Lusaria.
The MCA admitted to the relationship with Lusaria but denied beating her up.
“We have dated for three weeks only. I have never spent a night in that hotel, neither have I had a sexual encounter with her. That pregnancy is not mine and we are just friends as I’m a married man,” said the MCA.
He added that, “I can’t let someone extort and blackmail me through intimidation.”
