Residents and neighbors of Mowlem MCA Benson Mwangi have accused him of repeatedly assaulting a woman said to be his “wife”.
Mowlem Ward is in Embakasi West Constituency in Nairobi County.
They said that three weeks ago, Mwangi assaulted his “wife” after a domestic dispute.
The woman identified as Kabura Kamau https://www.facebook.com/briannah.benson was reportedly assaulted at around 4 am.
She reportedly took to her facebook to complain and vent her anger.
However, the alleged posts have been deleted.
“Mowlem MCA Hakuna hata kwake nyumbani, yeye hutembea kama mgeni, speaking as his wife, uyu msimpee kiti kwasababau ata mimi sitajichokesha kumtafutia iyo kiti tena,” Kabura posted on her facebook.
Gakiha Ken replied……real men don’t fight women.
Her current facebook status is that she is single.
“It sucks” is what is posted as her political views and she says she’s interested in Men.
Facebook user, https://www.facebook.com/nilibonganabonga.nitabonga has also deleted posts earlier made regarding the case.
“After she was thoroughly beaten up, she left for her parents’ home in Thika. She has three kids with the Nairobi County rep. Reports of the assault have been published all over social media,” said a neighbor who requested anonymity.
However, the alleged “wife” has reportedly not gone to any police station to have the incident booked.
Hot News tried to reach out to Kabura Kamau for comment, but we couldn’t reach her.
On his part, the MCA blamed his political opponents for what he termed as a “smear campaign”
“The political season is here with us. People are spreading all manner of things. I don’t care anymore. I have been away for the last three months -outside the Country and I am not aware of any one I have assaulted,” Mwangi said.
He, however, did not say if he is married to Kabura Kamau or not.
The rep added that recently some woman emerged and claimed to be his wife.
“I don’t know her, but she insisted on being my wife. She has kids. This shocked me,” he said.
