A police officer is recuperating after he was attacked by a woman for questioning why she was defying curfew hours.

According to a police report, the officer identified as sergeant Moses was walking towards Bypass Patrol Base in Nairobi’s Lang’ata area at around 8 pm when he came across the woman.

When officer Moses questioned the woman as to why she was outside at the time a confrontation ensued that left the policeman wounded.

The report reads: “She bit his right ear cutting it completely. After noticing that she had injured the officer, she ran towards the river bordering Lang’ata and Kibera. The injured sergeant picked the piece of the ear which had fallen down and proceeded to Nairobi West Hospital.”

New Case

Elsewhere the prosecution of Turkish tycoon Osman Elsek, wanted over the defilement of three minors and child prostitution will start afresh.

The High Court discovered irregularities believed could have lead to a miscarriage of justice, for both the victims and the foreigner.

Malindi High Court Judge Reuben Nyakundi ruled that the entire trial process was marred with procedural irregularities and illegalities.

“The power of transfer ought to have been exercised with due care and attention as the session Magistrate with jurisdiction could not possibly transfer the case to the Chief Magistrate at Malindi, which is superior in ranking to his court,” ruled Justice Nyakundi.
