• They had planned for a date in Nairobi CBD.
• They met through Facebook.
A man has been found guilty of causing harm to a Nairobi woman by throwing her off a building in the case of a date gone wrong.
Moses Njoroge allegedly met her for a date in the CBD.
Magistrate Esther Kimilu in her ruling determined that there was no justification for the suspect's actions, further noting that the accused showed no remorse after the act.
The court heard that the suspect kept hitting the victim’s face while forcing her to wear her shoes and did nothing to help even after throwing her from the 12th floor.
"He kept hitting her in the face with his fist, forcing her to put on shoes that the accused would repeatedly remove," noted Magistrate Kimilu.
The woman told the court that she met Njoroge on Facebook and they set a date on that fateful day.
The woman described to the court events before the date. She told that she went to Nairobi CBD, and met him at his office.
They would later go out for lunch together before returning to his office where they had some drinks until 7:30 pm when she felt she needed to go home. She informed him so.
She told the court that the suspect was enraged that she was leaving, and insisted on spending the night with her.
Njoroge is said to have thrown her out of a window on the 12th floor during the ensuing argument, with reports indicating that she fell three floors down to the 9th floor.
Following the incident, the woman was hospitalized for 2 months at KNH, after a pelvic injury.
The suspect will be sentenced on Thursday, December 1, 2022.
