A 31-year-old hairdresser has been charged in court for breaking her lover’s leg. Nusra Adhiambo is alleged to have injured Lameck Nyapara who is a police officer attached to an airport in the city, on September 16 at their home in Nairobi.
Police said Nyapara, who is a widower had been living with the accused for some time and were dating. According to police, Nyapara arrived home late on the material day after watching a football match late into the night.
The accused is said to have gone back to bed after letting Nyapara into the house. Police say that an argument ensued when Nyapara asked for food, leading to an argument. The accused is said to have dismissed the officer, demanding that he go back wherever he had come from for food.
The court heard that Adhiambo then followed Nyapara into the kitchen and hit him with a jembe, which caused a fracture in his hip bone. Police said Nyapara lost consciousness for three hours. He was allegedly rescued by a friend who also took him to hospital.
Adhiambo denied the charges and was released on a Sh200, 000 personal bond pending hearing on March 4, 2019.
