Simon Mbugua off the hook in assault case against ex-NCBDA boss
A Nairobi court has dropped charges of robbery with violence against East African Legislative Assembly member Simon Mbugua and two other persons after the complainant in the case said he was forgiven them.
Appearing before Senior Principal Magistrate Martha Mutuku, former Nairobi Central Business District Association chairman Timothy Muriuki informed the Court that he had forgiven Mr Mbugua together with Benjamin Odhiambo alias Solo and Anthony Ombok alias Jamal.
He said he decided to drop the charges unconditionally after negotiations.
The three had been charged with violently stealing from Mr Muriuki of Sh100, 000 on April 30.
They were also charged with injuring him, during the attack at Hotel Boulevard in Nairobi.
After denying the charges, the three were released on bond.
But on Tuesday, Mr Muriuki said he had decided to drop the complaint against the three accused persons.
