Daudi Nzomo, the man who was filmed assaulting his wife, has pleaded guilty to a charge of causing grievous harm in Makueni court.
Mr Nzomo simply remarked true when the charges were read to him in court.
The prosecutor, Ms Eunice Gitau, sought one week to get a report on Mr Nzomo’s criminal history.
The magistrate, Mr James Mwaniki, allowed her to file the report as well as a victim impact assessment.
The court ordered Nzomo to be remanded at Makueni Police Station until Wednesday, August 8, when he will be sentenced.
The suspect was arrested in Nguuni, Kibwezi West Constituency on Thursday while on the run after the video of him viciously beating up his wife went viral.
