Drama in court as man confesses to be in love with a woman he harassed sexually


Mombasa,KENYA: A man confessed in a  Mombasa court that  he is  in love  with a lady  he  is accused  of touching her private parts.

Alexandar Mbondo told  court that he loves Collette  Mutua and  he even proposed  to  marry  her but  she turned  him down.

A confident Mbondo said that Ms Mutua used  parables in her communication  and  it  was
hard for him to understand.

‘Your honor when the heart loves, it is beyond human control. I used to visit Ms  Mutua at her work place praying that one day she will understand me’, he told the court.

He is charged with committing an indecent act contrary to section 17 (a) of the sexual offence Act.

The court was told that Mbondo intentionally touched the private parts of Colletta Mutua with his hands at Coast Drapers in Mombasa County.

The prosecution led by Mr. Eugene Wagila read the facts,  that on diverse dates between April and September 2016, the accused person wanted a romantic relationship with the complainant  but she denied.

‘The accused person kept pushing the accuser to love him’, Wagila said.

Court also heard that the accused was earlier warned by police to stay away from Ms Mutua.

Wagila further said Mbondo was annoyed after Mutua declined his sexual overtures and kept pushing her before she reported to police.

He pleaded guilty but after mitigation court recorded that he denied the offences. The accused has been in the remand for about six months since his arrest.

The case set for hearing on April, 3 2017.
