A female employer who attacked one of her female employees using a car key has been arrested.
Court papers reveal that Mercy Wambui Kamau assaulted Esther Nguman Ngandu after she got insecure with her, accusing her of having an affair with her husband.
“Mercy Wambui Kamau assaulted Esther Ngiman Ngandu on September 18 at about 7:00 pm in the evening along Kikuyu road in Riruta,” the court clerk said.
On the day of the incident, Ngandu and his male colleague were reportedly asked to stay behind after finishing their daily work with their boss - Wambui's husband.
The assignment that their boss called them to do run to the late hours of the evening. This made the boss get concerned about their safety hence offering to give them a ride to their respective homes.
Following the boss' offer, the duo made their way to the parking lot where the car was parked not knowing what awaited them.
Wambui reportedly punched Ngandu in the face as she hauled insults on her accusing her of being a prostitute.
Following the incident, Ngandu reportedly gave up taking a ride on the vehicle and decided to go seek treatment at the nearest health facility. After the treatment, she was given a P3 form that she used to report the matter to the police.
Wangui was later arrested and was arraigned in court where he was charged with assault. She, however, denied the charges and was released on a cash bail of Ksh 10,000pending mention on October 25.
