A Makueni Court was left stunned after a woman sought permission to bewitch a man accused of defiling her daughter.
This after the Court had adjourned the trial of Dominic Musyoka, after a doctor who was to testify in the defilement case of a 10-year-old minor failed to turn up in court.
According to reports, the distraught mother doubted the court’s commitment to settling the case. The accused also complained that he had suffered following the long delay in determining the matter.
The woman asked the Court to allow her to settle it the ‘Kikamba Way.’
“The court should allow me to pursue this matter the Kikamba way,” she said, prompting the magistrate, Gerald Mutiso to seek clarification on what she meant.
The prosecutor, Tito Wanga, said the woman meant seeking the services of a witchdoctor.
Wanga said he sought an adjournment of the case after the doctor failed to show up because his evidence is crucial in the case.
“This is the last adjournment,” Mutiso ruled. He added that the matter will be heard on March 4.
The suspect, who is a local secondary school teacher, is said to have defiled the girl on February 14 last year after enticing her with a soda. The incident took place at Machinery Market in Makueni County.
The suspect is out on a Sh200, 000 bond.
