Trans-Nzoia Member of County Assembly Joseph Kapchanga has been arrested for assaulting a woman who is alleged to be his father’s lover.
Joseph Kapchanga, a nominated Member of County Assembly was arrested alongside his sister for attacking and assaulting a woman said to be their father’s lover.
The legislature is said to have organized and mobilized a group of 10 assailants including his sister and attacked the woman on Sunday, September 13 at her home in Chorlim, Endebess Sub County.
The 50 years old woman was left nursing injuries and bruises afflicted all over her body by the assailants.
Endebess OCPD Salesioh Murithi said that Joseph Kapchanga had forced his father Kapchanga Marangachi to accompany them to the home of the woman and forced him to declare love and commitment to marry the lady.
“They frog-marched him to the complainant’s home and attempted to forcefully have him marry the widow but he refused and managed to escape,” said the OCPD.
They arrived at the home of the woman but tension arose when Kapchanga Marangachi, MCA’s father declined to marry his alleged lover prompting the assailants and his sister to descend his father and the woman.
Sources indicate Marangachi is a widower while the accused woman is a widow and have been cohabiting for a while.
The OCPD said the MCA and his sister were arrested and will face charges of assault, causing bodily harm, and malicious damage to property. Other assailants went on hiding and the police are still hunting for them.
