The suspect Duncan Otieno Juma

A businessman identified as George Njoroge last week narrated to a court how a Kenya Defence Forces soldier beat him up after he caught him having sex with his wife in his Makadara house.

The court heard that Duncan Otieno, based at Kahawa Garrison, attacked the complainant early in the year and caused damage to a television set and DVD player all valued at Sh12,500 while roughing him up.

The suspect, however, missed mention of his case in court even before hearing date was set, Nairobian reports.

According to Njoroge, Otieno was a regular customer at their hotel back in Mandera County — which is when he began eyeing his wife back in 2014.

Njoroge claims he was tipped off by neighbours who told him that the suspect often frequented his house in his absence.

Njoroge told the trial magistrate that he reported the matter to area OCS in Mandera. The two moved on after Otieno apologised.

The court also heard that in 2014, Njoroge transferred his wife and family to Nairobi due to insecurity in Mandera and had hoped Otieno would disappear from the picture only to find him in bed with his wife the morning after Christmas.

“Immediately he saw me, he grabbed the bed sheet, covered my face hurriedly and the assaulted me in my wife’s presence,” Njoroge lamented.

The case is set for February 8, 2017.
