Wetang’ula fails to obey summons over assault complaint

By Asha Mwana Hamisi

An assault complaint filed by CORD co-principal Moses Wetang’ula against his wife could be thrown out as the Bungoma senator has not obeyed police summons to record a statement.

He accused his wife Ann of injuring him.

She also reported the senator to police for a similar offence. Nairobi police boss Japheth Koome says the two reports were being investigated.

The police are however unable to conclusively investigate the complaints until the two agree to have their statements recorded.

Mrs Wetang’ula was the first to report to the police on February 21 that her husband had assaulted her. On the same day, Wetang’ula went to Lang’ata Police Station and reported that his wife had assaulted him.

He said he had accused his wife of infidelity.

That is when Mrs Wetang’ula became furious and attacked him. He said he was injured on the head, left hand, left leg and chest.

In a report to the Lang’ata OCS, a police doctor said the Ford-K boss sustained multiple soft tissue wounds.
