A motorist confessed to a Nairobi court that he ran over a police officer because he was having an affair with his wife.
Geoffrey Sungura Wekesa, who has been in police custody for three days after his arrest on Friday, appeared before Milimani chief magistrate Francis Andayi to answer to charges of attempted murder.
The incident was captured on CCTV.
It is alleged that on the 24th of October around 11:14 am along Likoni Road, Wekesa intentionally and unlawfully attempted to cause the death of constable Henry Kemboi by hitting and injuring him using a motor vehicle he was driving in.
Through his lawyer Bernard Kanyiri, the traffic officer argues that Wekesa has been using his influence to avoid arrest until Friday, saying that he (traffic cop) has since been served with a transfer letter to Turkana County for allegedly demanding punishment of his assailant.
“My client was just served with a letter; he is to report to Lokitaung in North Turkana, a quest to quash justice for my client. My client doesn’t understand the posting especially because he has been to Turkana County where he served for 7 years just after training,” added the lawyer.
