After pleading guilty to assault charges, a 34-year-old Ugandan man who clobbered his Kenyan wife after she discovered him in their marital bed with another lady on Christmas Day is currently awaiting sentencing.
After being charged before the Makadara Law Courts on December 25, 2022, for allegedly assaulting his wife Aida Nekesa in the Kosovo area of Mathare, Nairobi, Mr. Peter Wakube pleaded guilty.
Around 2 pm, Ms. Nekesa, a housekeeper, came home from work to see Mr. Wakube having sex with another woman.
According to testimony presented in court, she discovered the couple in love after repeatedly knocking on Mr. Wakumbe’s door.
Mr. Wakube descended on her with blows and kicks, threw her outside the house where he continued beating her for interrupting the sweet moment before neighbours intervened and rescued the complainant. Ms. Nekesa sustained injuries on the face and abdomen.
She was escorted to Mathare police station where she made a report before proceeding to a hospital.
Her P3 form was filled and injuries sustained classified.
Mr. Wakube was arrested at the house later.
Police recovered a photo of the complainant which he had torn into pieces in a fit of rage.
He pleaded for leniency before Principal Magistrate Agnes Mwangi claiming he is remorseful.
Ms. Mwangi ordered for the convict’s social inquiry report to be tabled before he is sentenced on January 24, 2023.
