A man in his late 20s has been arraigned in court for allegedly attempting to rape his mother.

According to a report by Crazy Monday, the man identified by court papers as AMM, allegedly tried to rape his 45-year-old mother in Kakamega Central District on September 17.

The court was told that on the morning of the said date, AMM woke and started cutting down trees at their compound. He reportedly took some to an unknown destination, leaving some in his cubicle.

His mother is then said to have taken some of the wood to use to prepare lunch, but AMM wasn’t happy when he found out the wood had been taken. He quarrelled with his mother, threatening to attack her with a hammer that was in his hands.

AMM allegedly pulled down his mother’s skirt saying he was ready to serve a jail term after having his way with her.

The complainant screamed for help attracting the attention of her daughter and other neighbours who came to her rescue.

The man was arrested by community policing personnel and forwarded to the police at Isulu Patrol Base.

Appearing before Kakamega Senior Principal Magistrate Hazel Wandere, AMM denied the charges of attempted rape and an alternative count of committing indecent acts with an adult, namely, caressing her genitals.

The accused was granted a Sh100,000 bond with a surety of similar amount or an alternative of Sh50,000 cash bail.

The matter will be mentioned on October 3 and heard on November 4.
