A woman who told her neighbour she has slept with all the dogs in Kawangware and later smashed her face with a bucket has been charged.
Robai Wamoja on Friday pleaded guilty to assault and causing bodily harm before Kibera magistrate William Tulei.
The complainant suffered serious injury to the right eye.
The charge sheet read that she assaulted Everlyne Muhonja on June 30 at Kangemi Gichagi area within Nairobi county.
The prosecution read aloud, "The accused person then insulted the complainant that she was a prostitute and at the same time told her she has slept with all the dogs within Kawangware."
The court heard the complainant had gone to a tap right in front of the accused person’s house when the accused person insulted her and created a disturbance.
She took a bucket and hit Muhonja in the face. She reported the attack to police.
Wamoja was arrested and booked at Kangemi police station and arraigned.
