Timothy Mulei before a Makadara court

The hearing in a case where a guy is accused of touching the behind of a traffic cop in public has been scheduled for the following year.

For his preliminary hearing, Timothy Mulei appeared before Makadara Chief Magistrate Francis Kyambia on Thursday.

The prosecution acknowledged that he had been given important evidence before the start of his trial.

On July 21, as the police officer was directing traffic at the Roasters Roundabout on the Thika Superhighway, Mulei was accused of touching the police officer's buttocks.

He is also charged with offensive behaviour in violation of section 94 (1) of the penal code for allegedly caressing and shaking the policewoman's buttocks with the intention of causing a disturbance.


The Kasarani police officer was working with colleagues when Mulei, who was apparently roaming beside the road with his friends, allegedly grabbed her from behind as she directed automobiles using the roadway.

Other onlookers laughed at the police officer as they passed the officer on foot as the accused started to leave.

However, Mr. Mulei was apprehended by the complainant's coworkers after they allegedly witnessed him caressing her.

Mulei is currently free on an 80,000 sh cash bail after denying the accusations.
