A 39 year old woman has landed in court for alleged assault on a 17 year old boy who wrote a love letter to her daughter.
Gladys Kwamboka was accused of attacking and injuring the boy after reportedly finding a love letter he wrote to her daughter purportedly soliciting for sex on April 26.
Ms Kwamboka was charged alongside neighbours Patrick Mokaya and Veny Kerubo who helped her beat up the boy, claiming they were instilling discipline on the boy.
The Form Three boy told the court that he was in the house around midday when Kwamboka knocked on the door and then stormed into the house. She reportedly switched off the television which the boy was watching, before assaulting him with slaps.
Kwamboka’s co-accused, who were outside and allegedly armed with crude weapons, are said to have joined in the attack that left the teenager with serious injuries.
In her defence, Kwamboka told the court that, “I just disciplined him for writing a love letter to my daughter.”
They were set free on Sh20,000 bond each. The matter will be mentioned on May 19.
