Man in court over abusive ‘sex’ sms to wife
A middle aged man appeared before a Kapenguria court on Friday charged with misuse of a mobile phone by sending an abusive message to his wife.
Bakari Sakwa was charged that on July 27, last year at around 10.34am at an unknown place in the country, he used a Safaricom mobile number 0728, 737, 377 to send an abusive text message to his wife, Ms Lydia Bakari.
The offence is contrary to section 28(a) of the Kenya Information and Communication Act Cap 411 (A) laws of Kenya.
The accused was charged with sending the message with the purpose of causing needless anxiety to his wife.
The charge further read that on July 29, last year at around 8.56am at a unknown place using the same mobile number, Sakwa sent another abusive text to the complainant stating, “Si kwa Kadhi tena ni kwa police? Peleka mimi popote pale penye wafikiria mzensi (sic)”.
The accused pleaded not guilty before Kapenguria Principal Magistrate Mr Moses Machage who advised the couple to sort out the matter out of court as it was a family matter and to report the outcome on March 9.
