42-year-old man to serve 3 years in jail for cutting woman’s buttocks, neck

An Elgeyo Marakwet court has been sentenced a 42-year-old man to three years in jail for causing grievous bodily harm to an elderly woman.

The court heard that on January 14, 2018 in Mon Location, Marakwet Sub-County, Thomas Kimutai Kisang attacked Mary Saniak using a ‘panga’ and cut her in the neck and buttocks.

The attack stemmed from a disagreement between Kimutai and Saniak after Saniak’s helper, identified as Paul, brought down a tree, which fell on Kimutai’s banana plantation.

Appearing before Senior Resident Magistrate Hezron Nyaberi, Kimutai pleaded guilty to assaulting Saniak, but asked for forgiveness, saying he was his family’s bread-winner.

He was, nonetheless, ordered to serve a three-year prison sentence.

Kimutai has 14 days to appeal the judgement.
