NAKURU, Kenya, Nov 22 – An accused person stabbed a magistrate and a complainant at the Nakuru Law Courts Tuesday, shortly after being handed a three-year sentence by Resident Magistrate Eunice Kelly.

The suspect, Michael Kahoro, who pulled out a screw driver after the judgment was delivered stabbed Kelly on the hand before heading for the complainant who he stabbed six times.

The complainant, Edith Adhiambo was treated at the Mediheal Hospital and is said to be in stable condition, while the magistrate who was taken to Aga Khan Hospital in Nakuru, was referred to undergo a scan.

The incident brings to fore concerns of the state of Nakuru Law Courts which are small in size and without proper partitioning.

They are often congested making suspects to stand very close to judicial officers presiding over cases.
