It was also noted that the former lawmaker was not at the scene of incident at the time of the said matter.

“From the evidence before the court, the case was brought in court on the backdrop of animosity and massive grudges between Gethenji and the other party,” Mutuku said.

The court also noted that the charges against the accused were trumped up. The presiding magistrate also stated that the accused persons were not arrested at the scene of incident.
