A man accused of taking a video of a woman using a washroom at a petrol station in Westlands, Nairobi has pleaded guilty to committing the act.

Appearing before senior principal magistrate Charles Mwaniki at Kibera Law Courts, the suspect told the court that he committed the offence to please his eyes. He also claimed that at the time he was committing the offence, he was possessed.

Court heard that Mark Mutongoi intentionally took the video of Margret Wangari without her consent.

Mutongoi committed the unlawful act on October 7 at Rubis petrol station in Westlands, Nairobi.

Wangari, the complainant had visited the said petrol station to refill her car and later decided to use the station's washrooms.

"After she was done she heard some movement behind the washroom," Court prosecutor Robert Ogallo told the court.

The court heard that it was the suspect's movement that alerted the complainant that the accused person had strategically placed his phone on the washroom's window to recording her.

The complainant later alerted fellow women who were within the area to explain the incident which led to the arrested of the suspect.

The case will be mentioned on Friday for further directions.
