A city barber has been charged for inappropriately touching a female police officer.

Mr David Munene Kathurima appeared before Senior Principal Magistrate Joyce Gandani and was charged with the offense of committing an indecent act with an adult.

Prosecution told court that the accused intentionally behaved indecently towards the police officer on September 10 in Nairobi’s downtown along Duruma Road at around 1.00pm.

He is accused of allowing his genitals to touch the officer’s behind without her consent, which is an offense under the Sexual offenses Act.

He was also charged with a second offense of willfully resisting to be arrested by the said officer with his male counterpart Corporal Jackson Ndirangu on the said date and place.


The accused person denied the offense and was released on a cash bail of Sh 30,000.

The Magistrate had at first directed that he could only secure his freedom after paying a cash bail of Sh 50,000.

But he pleaded to the court saying that he could not raise that amount forcing the Magistrate to consider his pleas and slashed the amount by Sh 20,000.

The officer had reported the incident to the Central Police Station on September 7, leading to his arrest over the weekend. The accused was detained till Tuesday when he was arraigned in court. The case will be heard on October 4.
