Top Nairobi Lawyer in the Dock for Beating Up Wife

July 26, 2019

A Law Society of Kenya (LSK) Council member has been accused of assaulting his wife in Nairobi.

Boniface Apamo Akusala, who represents Nairobi at the LSK Council, was yesterday arraigned in court and charged with assault and causing actual bodily harm to his wife Faith Leah Kweya.

The prosecution told the court that the advocate committed the offence on June 16 at Oasis estate in South C, Nairobi.

“On June 16 at Oasis estate, Lang’ata Sub-County in Nairobi, you unlawfully assaulted Faith Leah Kweya thereby occasioning her actual bodily harm,” the charge sheet stated.

Akusala, who was elected to the LSK post in February 2018, was arrested on July 23 and released on a police cash bail of Sh5,000.

Appearing before Kibera Senior Resident Magistrate Renee Kitagwa, Mr Akusala denied the charges.

He successfully applied for bond and was ordered to deposit Sh100,000 or a cash bail of Sh30,000 to secure his release.

The case will be heard on October 2, 2019.
