Former UNCTAD boss and presidential candidate Dr Mukhisa Kituyi has been accused of assaulting a woman at a five-star hotel in Mombasa.

The complainant says the incident happened in May and she filed a report at Nyali Police Station.

According to People Daily, the woman accused him of dragging her out of bed and kicked her severally while she was on the floor.

The reason behind this incident, she explained, was allegedly because she turned down Kituyi’s advances.

Following the assault, she sustained knee injuries which she sought treatment for at the Coast General.

Kituyi has since denied the reports saying it was false and that he has never assaulted a woman in his life.

“Someone had written a report claiming I had assaulted her but it was not true. I’ve never beaten any woman in my life nor do I intend to ever do it at any given time. We sorted out the case and it was withdrawn,” he stated.

However, Nyali OCS Albert Chebii said the case has not been withdrawn.

“We are still investigating the matter,” the officer stated.

Another senior officers privy to the case said that when the case is withdrawn, it is recorded on the OB and signed by the complainant.

“Once a complainant withdraws a matter at the station level, the withdrawal should be entered in the OB and a withdrawal statement signed by the complainant indicating he or she does not intend to proceed with the matter which is not the case in this matter,” the officer maintained.

Kituyi has been popularizing his 2022 Presidential bid. He visited Mombasa in May to continue planning on his campaigns.
