A young couple who assaulted their neighbour pleaded not guilty at Makadara law court.

On the material day, court documents have it that Masese found Morara talking to his wife and that he didn’t like the way he was looking at her.

Seeing as this was not the first time he had found the neighbour talking to his wife and leering at her, he picked a quarrel with him.

Midway the verbal combat, Morara is reported to have said something that suggested it was Masese’s wife who was interested in him.
