Former ‘Vitimbi’ actress Eunice Wambui popularly known as Nyasuguta on Thursday told the Court how two men attacked her at a nightclub over a Sh1650 bill.
Appearing before Milimani magistrate Elector Riany, Nyasuguta testified that she sustained serious injuries and lost Sh16,000 during the incident at Club Sidai Oleng on Kiambu Road.
The Court heard that Nyasuguta, Embakasi North Parliamentary aspirant Mr Harrison Wangoro Mwangi, and Mr George Maina had gone to the club for lunch before the attack happened.
“Mr Mwangi had paid a bill of Sh14,500 when an additional bill of Sh1,650 was handed to them by Dorica. I asked her why she added an extra bill,” Nyasuguta said.
“Upon questioning the bill, Mr Maina opted to pay and handed over two bank visa card and asked the waiter to confirm which had money then use it to foot the bill,” Nyasuguta said.
Maina said the waiter failed to return one bank visa card and when he insisted to be given back his card, one John Ngigi Kabogo, advanced to their table and attacked Nyasuguta.
Nyasuguta testified that she was stripped and her bra torn in the process before running to safety leaving behind her vehicle at the club’s parking lot.
“I went to a hospital where I undressed to be examined as I had suffered injuries on my lower back,” Nyasuguta.
The aspiring politician said she also lost her gold chain and gold earrings worth Sh16,000. She said she returned to the club the next day on March 21, 2018,
She denied a suggestion by defence lawyer that she could not pay a bill of Sh2,000, and told the court the bill had been paid and that she was attacked for no apparent reason.
Nyasuguta , Mr Mwangi and Mr Maina positively identified the accused persons – John Ngigi Kabogo, Joseph Karanja and club waiter Dorica Wambuga, as their attackers.
On cross-examination by defence lawyer, Nyasuguta and Mr Maina denied they were drunk when they were attacked. They told the defence lawyer that the lost card was later recovered at the club.
One of the suspects, Kabogo has been charged with being found with a Techno mobile phone belonging to Mr Mwangi, who was also robbed cash and had his motor vehicle windscreen smashed.
The accused denied charges of robbery with violence, assault, and handling of suspected stolen property.
