How top policewoman left husband’s ‘lover’ for the dead in ambulance
A senior female officer left an unconscious girl in a police ambulance for six hours to attend to her husband at a city hospital.
Ms Regina Mutindi Mbithi, a Superintendent of Police in charge of the Highway Patrol Unit was also accused of colluding with her husband to interfere with a criminal case in which he was accused of defiling the victim.
Ms Mbithi was dismissed from the service on October 15.
Her husband, Mr Wilfred Mbithi who was dismissed in June last, had been accused of defiling a girl and frustrated the victim’s parents using his position and money.
Last year, Mr Mbithi was in company of the girl in his car when they were involved in an accident at Salama, along the Nairobi-Mombasa Highway, under unclear circumstances.
Ms Mbithi went to the scene in a police ambulance and brought the two to Nairobi Hospital where the girl was left waiting for about six hours.
Ms Mbithi later took her to the Kenyatta National Hospital where she remained for weeks.
Though she knew the parents, she did not inform them about their daughter’s admission and instead left for Mombasa the following day with her husband after he was discharged.
