Speaking during a court proceeding in Milimani, Geoffrey Wekesa who was captured on CCTV reversing and knocking down a traffic officer claimed that the officer has been having an affair with his wife which resulted in their separation.

Through his lawyer Peter Wakiaga, the accused said he had since become the mother and father to his children who have been suffering while he was in custody.

“I therefore request that this Court release him on lenient terms,” said Wakiaga.

The man was released on Sh500 000 cash bail with an alternative bond of Sh1 million after he pleaded not guilty.

The lawyer also told the court that he works for a private immigration consultancy firm and not the Immigration department as had been earlier purported.

The case is set for mention in November 20.
