Prison officer: I lost pregnancy after my husband assaulted me

By Lilian Chepkoech | November 7th 2021

A prison officer from Lang’ata Women Prison is seeking justice after losing a pregnancy following an alleged assault by her husband.

She said her husband, Ernest Muriungi, went home drunk and started assaulting her, leading to the loss of her three-month pregnancy.

Muriungi was accused of committing the offence on October 21 at Langata Women Prison.

The court heard that Muriungi arrived home drunk and soon an argument that spiralled into a fight ensued. Muriungi is said to have assaulted his wife who started to bleed.

An alarm was raised and the victim was rushed to the hospital, and upon examinations, it was discovered that she had lost her three-month pregnancy.

He was arrested and later taken to court.

Muriungi denied the claims and asked for court’s mercy after the State prosecutor said that there had been several gender-based violence cases.

Counsel Robert Ogallo prayed to the court to have the accused, a first-time offender, released on tough terms because he caused grievous harm.

He was released on a Sh20,000 cash bail. The matter will be mentioned on December 12.
