, NYAHURURU, Kenya, Mar 6 – A man who allegedly urinated on his mother while drunk was on Tuesday arraigned before a Nyahururu court and charged with the offence.
Paul Gachohi Gituku was also charged with creating disturbance in a manner likely to cause a breach of the peace by attempting to beat up his mother for failing to give him food.
He appeared before Nyahururu District Magistrate Victor Kiptoon where he denied committing the crime.
The charges stated that on the night of February 26, at Maina village in the outskirts of Nyahururu town he returned home while drunk and engaged the mother, Ann Wairimu, in a confrontation while she was sleeping with a woman friend.
He then started urinating on the bed that the two women were sleeping on and threatened to be beat them both.
The court heard that Gachohi used abusive words on the two for several hours before he picked a panga and threatened to attack his mother.
The two women raised an alarm that attracted neighbours and also rushed to the nearby Maina AP post where the officers accompanied them to the scene.
They found the accused in the house holding the sharp panga ready to attack anyone who came near him.
The court heard that the officers immediately arrested the accused and took him to Nyahururu police station where he was locked up.
Gachohi was released on a Sh30,000 bond and a surety of a similar amount or a cash bail of Sh10,000 until March 21 when the case will be heard.
