Moses Kuria Due to Plea in Assault Case

Share on Social Media

The ruling followed an application by Kuria’s team of lawyers led by Dr John Khaminwa who opposed his plea taking.

In his submissions, Dr Khaminwa on Monday told the court the police disobeyed a court order issued by Milimani Principal Magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot on Friday last week allowing Kuria to be released from police custody.

The legislator, who is not new to controversy, is accused of attacking a woman last month in December under unclear circumstances.

According to reports, the incident happened right inside the Inooro FM radio studios in Nairobi, during a political talk show.

Kuria who was arrested on Friday was freed Saturday evening on a Sh20,000 police bond after attempts to have him freed on a Sh50,000 cash bail obtained from Principal Magistrate Cheruiyot failed.
