Matatu Driver Laments Acquittal of Traffic Cop Who Smashed his Testicles

May 31, 2019

A matatu driver is crying foul after a Nairobi Court this week acquitted a police officer accused of assaulting him in 2013.

43-year-old Ernest Nyamoti said he was arrested over a traffic offence in 2013 after which police officers proceeded to beat him up severely damaging his manhood.

Nyamoti said he can no longer sire children after undergoing surgery to remove his badly damaged testicles.

“Where is justice in this country? What more evidence would the magistrate want? I’m alive and the doctors testified in my favour, explaining that my testicles were smashed and later removed?

“I no longer have sexual feelings and I have no chance of fathering a child,” he said.

Mr Nyamote further said he spent around Sh 1.4 million on treatment.

In his ruling, Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot said the prosecution had failed to prove the case against the accused, Constable Jamal Hussein.

“After evaluating the evidence tabled in court, l find the prosecution has not established a prima facie case against the accused and I, therefore, acquit him under Section 210 of the Criminal Procedure Code,” ruled the magistrate.
