Man Slapped With Sh. 3 Million Bond For Attack On Kiambu County Driver.



A middle-aged man was arraigned in a Thika court in connection to the attack of a Kiambu County Government driver who had a few weeks ago reported that his life was in danger after he accused a county director of assaulting and threatening to kill him.

Kelvin Kung’u Njoroge (pictured) was accused of having attacked and robbed Geoffrey Ndirima Muhia on the night of 2nd September 2016 in Witeithie Estate.

“You are accused that on the night of 2nd September, armed with dangerous weapons namely a panga, robbed Geoffrey Ndirima Muhia a Samsung cellphone and cash amounting to sh. 1700 and after or before the robbery, cut with a panga to serious injury,” read the charges.

The accused denied the charges of robbery with violence contrary to Section 295 as read with Section 296 (c) of the Penal Code.

Chief Magistrate Teresa Murigi slapped a Sh. 3million bond on the suspect, with a surety of the same amount.

The case has been scheduled for a mention on 3rd October 2016 and hearing date of 16th November 2016.
Kung’u was arrested on the 16th of this month in Witeithie Estate.

Geoffrey Muhia’s predicaments came to the public limelight after he accused Joseph Kang’ethe, the county enforcement director, of beating him up and threatening to kill him for refusing to help his wife with her chores. When the wife, a county government communication officer, told her husband, he is alleged to have confronted Mr. Muhia and assaulted him and threatened to kill him.

Mr. Muhia alleged that some top county officials have been pressuring him to withdraw the case, saying it was denting Governor William Kabogo’s political image.

He was accosted by four men him on the night of 2nd September at Witeithie estate in Thika while he was on his way home and slashed him seven times with a Somali sword.

He still believes that the attack is linked to the assault case.
