Chacha Mwita and Cynthia in Court

A couple was charged in a Meru court for inconveniencing members of the public by way of noisy screams while having sex.

The h*rny lovebirds; Chacha Mwita, 24, and Cynthia Mauhokha, 31, were charged alongside Magoola Twaha, a 27-year-old Ugandan.

Resident Magistrate Maureen Odhiambo heard that on Sunday at Makutano Imenti North in Meru, the threesome was found in a lodging with the intent to commit a felony.

State prosecutor Adams Chelule told the Court that police officers from Meru police station acting on a tip-off from members of the public ambushed the three suspects at Palms Guest House.

The officers had received information that a witch doctor was staging a scene to dupe members of the public, reports the Star newspaper.

Mwita, who is a businessman, and Cynthia, a casual labourer, were to pretend to be stuck together during coitus, with the witchdoctor (Twaha) coming to their rescue using his black magic.

Prosecutor Chelule said when police arrived at the scene, the ‘lovebirds’ were heard screaming in one of the rooms. They proceeded to the room and found the couple in the act screaming as Twaha watched.

Police were forced to shoot in the air to disperse a crowd that was gathering to watch the incident unfold.

The ‘witch doctor’ Magoola Twaha pleaded not guilty to two charges.

Mwita and Chacha had pleaded guilty to two counts but after hearing the details pertaining to the charges, the court entered a plea of not guilty.

Cynthia testified that she was in her usual business when she and Chacha agreed on Sh1,000 for sex but the businessman gave her only Sh400.

She stated that she has known Chacha since December last year and she was shouting as she demanded full payment before having sex with her co-accused.

On his part, Chacha told the court they were not stuck as police alleged and that they were surprised to see a crowd gathering.

Magistrate Odhiambo said in view of their response the court presumed they had not pleaded guilty.

The magistrate slapped the suspects with a cash bail of Sh20, 000 or a bond of Sh50, 0000.

The matter will be mentioned on April 29 and heard on May 15, 2019.
