Gatundu South MP seeks an out of court settlement in an assault case

Gatundu South Member of Parliament (MP) Moses Kuria is seeking to have an assault case settled out of court.

Appearing before Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku today, Kuria through his lawyer Geoffrey Omenke said that they are pursuing an out of court settlement so that the presenter withdraws the case.

“We have agreed to have an alternative dispute resolution mechanism,” said Omenke.

Magistrate Mutuku directed the matter to be mentioned on February 4, 2021 to confirm whether the parties have agreed for an alternative dispute resolution mechanism.

In the case, Kuria reportedly assaulted Joyce Wanja who is also a Media Commentator known by her stage name Wagichungumwa at the Royal media offices.

Joyce Wanja, an activist, alleges that the Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, descended on her with slaps and blows while she was on her line of duty preparing to go on air for Inooro TV Kirîrîmbi show.

The activist, Joyce Wanja, recorded a statement at the Kilimani Police Station where she says she can only hope Moses Kuria is not too mighty for justice to be ensured.

Meanwhile, Kuria wants the court to commit OCPD and OCS Kilimani to civil jail for disobeying a court order that had stopped his arrest in another case.

He made this application before Magistrate Kenneth Cheruiyot.
