A magistrate’s court sitting in Milimani has acquitted Water and Sanitation PS Julius Korir who was accused of beating estranged wife Evelyn Koech in 2020.

Korir said the allegations were not true and that the charges against him were of settling a score or personal vendetta against him.

Korir told Milimani senior principal magistrate Dolphina Alego that at the time he is alleged to have assaulted Koech, they were separated and she had already moved out of their matrimonial home.

“Your honour, I got married to the complainant in June 2014 and our marriage ran into difficulties. We separated but lived under the same roof. The complainant moved out of the house around 2019,” Korir told the court.

He added that shortly after that, she moved to children’s court for custody of the kids and also prayed for child support in 2020.
