He is said to have committed the offences at Jerusalem village in Mwea on July 23.

However, the suspect denied the charges before Wanguru Principal Magistrate Gerald Mutiso yesterday.  He was charged that on July 23, this year at Jerusalem village of Mwea East Sub-County willfully and unlawfully mutilated the genitals of his wife. He faced a second count which stated that on the same date and place he caused grievous bodily harm to the woman.

The prosecution urged the court not to release the accused on bond for his own safety after his mother was lynched by a mob on the same day and place he was said to have committed the offence, for allegedly shielding her son.

The court was also informed by the prosecution the woman was still admitted at the Kimbimbi hospital following the alleged assault.

The magistrate consequently ordered the accused to be remanded at the Gathigirir G.K.Prison until August 13 when his case will come up for a mention while the hearing has been fixed for October 17.
