NAIROBI, Kenya [SHIFTMEDIA NEWS] A court has jailed Moses Gatama Njoroge for 5 years for throwing woman from 12th floor of Nairobi building after she turned down his sexual advances.
According to Daily Nation the ICT expert who threw a 20-year-old woman he had met on Facebook from the 12th floor to the ninth floor of a building in Nairobi was convicted last week.
Milimani Senior Principal magistrate Esther Kimilu convicted Moses Gatama Njoroge of causing grievous harm.
Magistrate Kimilu said the victim had suffered serious injuries.
The magistrate cited medical records that outlined the woman’s injuries inflicted.
“The victim was immobilised for a couple of months and could not stand without crutches at the time she was giving her testimony,” Ms Kimilu said.
The court heard that the suspect kept hitting the victim’s face while forcing her to wear her shoes and did nothing to help even after throwing her from the 12th floor.
“He kept hitting her in the face with his fist, forcing her to put on shoes that the accused would repeatedly remove,” noted Magistrate Kimilu.
The woman told the court that she met Njoroge on Facebook and they set a date on that fateful day.
The woman described to the court events before the date. She told that she went to Nairobi CBD, and met him at his office.
They would later go out for lunch together before returning to his office where they had some drinks until 7:30 pm when she felt she needed to go home. She informed him so.
She told the court that the suspect was enraged that she was leaving, and insisted on spending the night with her.
Njoroge is said to have thrown her out of a window on the 12th floor during the ensuing argument, with reports indicating that she fell three floors down to the 9th floor.
