domesticOn Wednesday a man was charged in a Nairobi court for battering his wife after she reportedly refused to have sex with him.

Antony Wakoli, allegedly kicked, punched and hammered his wife’s legs, fingers and thighs on October 23 at Summer Estate in Baba Dogo, Nairobi.

The court heard that the 30 year old man got home at 9pm while his wife was asleep, and served himself food before going to the bedroom where he demanded for sex from Elizabeth Orende.

Upon being denied his conjugal rights, a furious Wakoli allegedly descended on Elizabeth with kicks and punches, which resulted in Ms Orende bursting into screams. The screams alerted their son who called on neighbors for help.

On the fateful night, Ms Elizabeth spent the rest of the night at a friend’s house, before she separated from the accused following the disagreement.

Mr Wakoli denied the charge and was released on a Sh10,000 cash bail.

The case heard by Chief Magistrate Emilly Ominde, will resume on April 21, 2016.
