A city mortuary attendant has been arraigned in court for allegedly raping a Ugandan woman.

Godfrey Arnold Omondi who works in a renowned funeral home in Nairobi, was also accused of taking naked pictures of the complainant and forcing her to suck his manhood.

The incident reportedly took place on March 28 at an estate along Thika Road.

The 27-year-old also faces alternative charge of committing an indecent act with an adult by intentionally touching her private parts without consent.

The complainant told police she met Omondi in November in a matatu.

She told the court that their conversation led to their frequent communication. At some point, the woman who was jobless, allegedly asked Omondi to help her find a job in Kenya.

It is reported that on the material day, Omondi asked to meet her outside the National Youth Service gate along Thika Road.

It was there, the court heard, that the accused asked her to accompany him to his house to further discuss a job offer.

“When we arrived at his house, he closed the door then forced me undress. He then started taking photos of me using his mobile phone before forcing me to suck his manhood,” the  Ugandan woman claimed in her statement to police.

According to the prosecution, Omondi raped the woman for more than 30 minutes and threatened to stab her. The prosecution added that the accused later asked the woman to dress up and accompany him for a drink.

The court heard that she escaped and rushed to a nearby hospital, from where she was transferred to Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital. The court further heard that she was discharged the following day.

Omondi denied the charges and was released on a Sh300,000 bond. The case begins on August 10.
