Nairobi driver has been presented before Makadaka Law Courts for allegedly touching a woman inappropriately while on a bus.

Court papers before Principal Magistrate Jackie Kibosia say that the driver identified as David Muya Gachucha touched the woman’s buttocks and breast without her consent.

“Gachucha intentionally and unlawfully touched the breasts and buttocks of the victim with his hands on January 7 at Runar stage along Ronald Ngala Street in Nairobi County,” the court papers read in part.

The woman is said to have been taking a nap at the back seat of the bus where she operated as a conductor when Gachucha came in and started touching her bosom.

She told the court that her efforts to stop the accused from committing the act bore no fruits as he continuously abused her verbally.

She claimed that the accused reportedly got angry and despised her as an old woman who should not boast about her beauty claiming that she is old and off the market.

The accused, however, denied the charges and was released on a cash bail of Ksh50,000.

The case will be mentioned on January 24.
