Court allows christian woman to withdraw rape charges against friend

A Nyahururu Law court has allowed an application by a 42-year-old woman to withdraw rape charges against Samuel Kahuho, an aide of a Nyandurua MCA.

According to particulars of the charge sheet the personal assistant to Ndaragwa Central MCA, David Maitai, had been accused of raping the 42 year old woman inside Maitai’s office store which is located in Ndaragwa township on January 31, 2020.

However, the case has hit a dead end after the complainant informed Chief Magistrate Charles Obulutsa that she wanted the case withdrawn for reasons that she was a born again secretarial Christian and her values dictated that she forgive those who wrong her.

“I am an ardent Christian and, since the defendant is also my friend, I have decided to forgive him and bury the hatchet,” she informed the court.

Mr Kahuho had been accused of raping the woman as she went to collect clothes that had been donated to her family by the MCA.
