Presidential aspirant Mukhisa Kituyi has just landed himself in more trouble as Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai and DPP take over the assault case.
IG Mutyambai on Thursday ordered police handling the case to finalize the probe and send the file to the Office of the Directorate of Public Prosecutions led by Noordin Haji for further actions.
IG Mutyambai has been forced to intervene in the issue as reported by The Star after receiving several complaints from the victim.
The woman identified as Diana Opemi Lutta has filed a report claiming that the former United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Secretary-General attacked last month at a five-star hotel.
In the report filed at the Nyali police station in Mombasa county under OB Number 10/22/05/2021, Ms. Lutta describes Kituyi as her boyfriend.
“Assault report to the station by one Diana Opemi Lutta (who) has submitted a report today the 22nd day of May 2021, at around 0200 hours. She has been assaulted by a person known to her within Tamarind Village, namely Mukhisa Kituyi whom she claims to be her boyfriend,” read the police report as seen by a local blog, Kahawa Tungu.
Through her narration to the police, Ms. Lutta said that Kituyi rained blows on her and kept hurling her to the bed which made her hurt her knees.
“Police advised her to seek medical attention for further police action after she was issued with a P3 form which was later filled at the Coast General Hospital,” the police report states as written by Kahawa Tungu.
But Kituyi has allegedly moved to resolve the issue. Kahawa Tungu reports that he has held talks with the police and the filed report has been withdrawn.
“Someone had written a report claiming l had assaulted her but it was not true, I’ve never beaten any woman in my life nor do I intend to ever do it at any given time. We sorted out the case and it was withdrawn,” he told the daily.
This contradicts a statement by Nyali OCS Albert Chebii who has quoted by the daily, the matter is still under active investigations.
With now the issue attracting the attention of IG Mutyambai everything may get worse for Kituyi ruining his reputation which his political enemies can use to bring him down.
