City auctioneer and Bungoma politician Zacharia Barasa is nursing serious injuries after he was beaten by the Mpango wa Kando of his wife. The wife Esther Siuma who has since separated with him is said to have invited the good in bed man for a soothing moment that later turned sour when the husband arrived.
A man who allegedly dragged down his lover’s husband before hitting him with a metal rod was charged with causing him grievous injuries.
Victor Mwenda Luti allegedly injured a city businessman after he found him outside his house in Nairobi’s Spring Valley estate. He is accused of causing serious injuries to Barasa along Shanzu Road in Westlands, Nairobi, on May 22.
Luti had parked his official car – KCR 498W – a double-cabin pickup truck outside Barasa’s home before he arrived. The businessman knew the suspect had an affair with his wife.
On arrival, Barasa confronted Luti and attempted to open his car but Luti drove off for nearly 300 metres dragging him down along the road as he held on to the door. Luti later stopped abruptly and picked a piece of metal rod that he allegedly used to hit Barasa who had fallen down.
He is said to have sustained injuries on the head and hands that suffered bruises. The duo of Barasa and Esther have been having constant marital issues and the matters seem not yet over with each party trying out other partners. Zachariah has refused to move on despite being separated and constantly follows up on the Wife’s activities.
Luti denied the charges before senior principal magistrate Esther Bhoke of Kibera law courts.
He was freed on a surety bond of Sh200,000 and an alternative cash bail of Sh80,000. The case will be mentioned on June 26.
