Devolution PS Kirui summoned to court over assault

NAIROBI, Kenya, 3 February – Julius Kirui, the Principal Secretary for Devolution, has been summoned to court to answer assault accusations within seven days.

The orders were issued after State Law Alice Mathangani filed a motion to summon Korir for unlawfully assaulting Evelyn Chepkorir.

Kirui allegedly assaulted Chepkorir on September 17, 2020 at Ndalat Road in Karen, inflicting her physical harm, according to the charging document.

In 2021, PS Kirui appeared before Justice Anthony Mrima to challenge the charges against him, but the court dismissed his petition.

The court stated that the State had valid grounds to prosecute him for assaulting his expectant wife.

Kirui argued that the State was acting in bad faith and was using the case to force him to settle his property row with Chepkorir.
