A Moi University first-year student has denied charges of destroying a television set belonging to her ex-boyfriend valued at Sh45,000.

Agnes Wangari was charged before Eldoret Principal Magistrate Kesse Cherono.

The charge against the social work student states that on March 3, 2024 at Kesses trading centre in Uasin Gishu county, she damaged the TV set belonging to Mohammed Ali.

The two caused drama when the complainant who ekes a living through online jobs exchanged bitter words with the accused as he opened up over their past love affair that had gone sour.

Dismissed pregnancy claims

Ali revealed how his former sweetheart stormed his rental house at Kesses, a few kilometres to the main campus, alleging that she was pregnant for him.

“On the night of March 3 at 10pm, the accused and her friend stormed my house alleging that she was pregnant which to the best of my knowledge I knew to be a lie,” narrated Ali.

Ali told the court it was after he dismissed her allegation that she became rowdy and started smashing his household property, including the TV.

In her defence, Wangari claimed Ali had assaulted her on several occasions adding that on the fateful night, they only differed over her pregnancy and the altercation was witnessed by her two female friends.

Series of assault

She further told the court that initially her two female friends witnessed an incident where she was assaulted by the complainant, causing her grievous injury.

The magistrate directed Wangari, who is out on a Sh20,000 bond, to report back in court on May 23 for further direction on the matter.
