‘Dumped’ man in trouble for removing ex-girlfriend’s three teeth
A man who extracted his ex-girlfriend’s three tooth for dumping pleaded guilty to charges of causing grievous harm, but then made a U–turn after he was informed the offence attracts a jail term of not less than 10 years.
Samuel Alfayo Akunda had admitted that he did grievous harm to Emily Achieng on October 30, 2021.
But senior resident magistrate Renee Kitangwa of Kibera law courts warned him of seriousness of the offence prompting him to deny it.
Achieng was walking to Akunda’s house to collect her items after deciding to end the relationship but met him on the way.
She informed him of her decision and an argument ensued during which he allegedly slapped her severally before he punched her and extracted her three upper tooth.
She sought treatment and later reported to Kibra police station.
Kitangwa released Akunda on a Sh100,000 bond and an alternative cash bail of Sh50,000.
The case will be mentioned on February 9.
