Makena Sara Ngari, a Kenyan woman, arrived in court to forgive a guy accused of grabbing her buttocks.
Ramadhan Johnson, 21, was arraigned before Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi, Kenya, for allegedly purposefully caressing Sara’s buttocks without her consent.
Sara was in court on Thursday, March 24, ready to dismiss the case, but she was dismayed when the Industrial Area prison failed to bring the accused in court.
Sarah wants the accused Ramadhan Johnson, who is still in custody after failing to raise a bond of Ksh300,000 or cash bail of Ksh100,000, released through an affidavit sworn by the complainant and filed in court.
“I have not been coerced, intimidated or influenced by any person including the accused into my decision to forgive him and withdraw this case,” Sarah’s affidavit read in part.
According to a police report, on the material day at around 9:00 pm, the complainant, who is a business lady along Murang’a Road, was returning her umbrella to her store when used who was walking behind her, intentionally touched her buttocks without her consent.
“While coming back from the store as she was walking along a narrow path, she was attacked by the accused person who intentionally touched her buttocks with his hands and pulled her towards his body,” the police report read.
The complainant, upon seeing three other men who reportedly also had the intention of abusing her, fled the scene for her safety.
On March 11, 2022, the 34-year-old complainant according to court documents, sent a group of elderly men to talk to the accused to admit his mistake and apologise but he refused.
