A student of Kenyatta University appeared in court for allegedly raping a first year student in his hostel room.
The suspect identified as Fredrick Nyamboga Ongwae allegedly committed the offence on February, 23 at Kenyatta village market within Kasarani sub-county.
The victim, aged 17, claims the suspect who was wearing a condom, raped her and threatened to kill her if she screamed for help.
The court heard that the two had been friends for a one day period during which Nyamboga alias Oro had asked the ‘fresher’ to visit him in his room.
The prosecution told the court that the accused asked her to go to his hostel to charge her phone and after the battery was full, the accused convinced her to spend the night at his place because it was late. He later forced himself on her at around 11pm after she denied him sex.
She was rescued by a security guard but the accused fled from the scene.
He denied the charges and was released on a Sh200, 000 bond. The matter will be heard on 26 April this year.
