A court in Nairobi has heard how a woman assaulted her ex-boyfriend in a bar after he ignored her.
Appearing at the Makadara Law Courts, Mary Wanjiku was accused of assaulting and injuring Kennedy Mwaniki at a bar in Githurai 44, Nairobi on September 16, 2022.
Mwaniki was reportedly having drinks at the bar where Wanjiku works as a waitress.
The court heard that Wanjiku greeted Mwaniki but he snubbed her. The accused reportedly grabbed a mop stick and attacked Mwaniki causing him bodily injuries.
Wanjiku allegedly committed the offence jointly with another suspect who is yet to be arrested. She denied the charges.
In mitigation, she told Senior Resident Magistrate Mercy Malingu that she dated the complainant and ended the relationship when she discovered that he was a married man.
The court granted her a cash bail of Sh10,000. The matter will be mentioned on November 1 ahead of the hearing set for January 31, 2023.
