A middle aged man was yesterday charged with assault and forcefully trying to marry a complainant.
Apparently the man burnt the complainant’s buttocks with a hot panga (A Bush Knife) after she refused to marry him.
The court heard that Salim Boriot had been having a rocky affair with Miss Cheburai Mohammed and she ended their relationship. Boriot lured her to visiting him at Nginyang’ market in Pokot and forcefully demanded that Cheburai marries him.
Cheburai refused the offer claiming that she does not love him. Irked Boriot slapped her and she fell down unconscious. Taking advantage of her unconsciousness Boriot used a red hot panga to burn her buttocks.
Borot told the court that he was in love with Cheburai and all he wanted was to marry her. Resident magistrate Samuel Soita ordered a psychiatry test to prove his mental fitness to stand trial.
