In what is likely to anger many Kenyans, the trial of Imenti Central MP Gideon Mwiti over rape has been suspended…..for now. Yesterday Justice Weldon Korir put the trial of the MP on ice in the midst of leakage of a confidential medical report in a local newspaper. The victim and complainant lawyers protested over the revelations of the report to the public while the MP’s seasoned lawyer John Khaminwa defended the published report.
The MP is seeking to permanently terminate a case in which he is accused of rape on March 21st this year. The victim’s lawyer protested the published report claiming that it had tampered with evidence yet to be presented in court. Mr. Nderitu representing the victim, pointed out the similarity of the confidential medical report to documents filed by MP Mwiti. He added that the media house which leaked the documents should be compelled to identify their source of information.
