A St Paul’s University student was on Monday charged with raping his ex-lover. Denis Abuga appeared before Kibera chief magistrate Abdul Lorot where he denied the charges.
Police claim Abuga committed the offence on July 9 in Dagoreti subcounty in Nairobi after he allegedly had sex with the complainant without her consent. He had gone to pick his personal belongings when the incident occured.
Abuga was also charged with the second count of committing an indecent act with an adult contrary to Sexual Offences Act.
Police said the complainant left Abuga in the sitting room and went into her bedroom, where the accused followed her and sat on the bed.
The accused was trying to force a conversation with the complainant when he got violent, grabbed the lady and threw her on the bed.
She called the neighbours who escorted her to Kilimani Police Station where she reported the matter. Abuga denied the charges and through his lawyer asked court for lenient bond terms.
The accused denied all the charges as he pleaded for lenient bail as the prosecution requested for DNA test. He was ordered by the magistrate to pay Sh200,000 bail with a surety of similar amount. The case will be heard on august 3.
