Cameroonian In Battery Case Against Kenyan Wife

A Cameroonian businessman was on Monday charged in a Nairobi court with assaulting his Kenyan wife.
Mr Doctta Peter Longa is said to have assaulted Ms Yasmin Abdalla Shariff on March 28 in the Lavington suburb of the capital city.
The prosecutor, a senior superintendent of police, opposed a bail application by the accused and told Nairobi chief magistrate Esther Maina that Mr Lomba was a flight risk.
The prosecutor said a business permit was no guarantee that the accused would stay in the country until the case was heard and determined.
He said most witnesses in the case are Mr Lomba’s employees and chances of him threatening them and interfering with investigations were high.
The prosecutor further argued that if the Cameroonian was granted bail, he might repeat the offence.
“The wife is still undergoing treatment and her life will be at risk if the accused is released on bail,” the court was told.
The prosecutor said the businessman’s passport and work permit had not been verified by the Cameroonian embassy since his arrest on Friday evening and requested that he be held in custody until the validity of the documents was ascertained.
He said the police had not concluded investigations and were likely to prefer more charges against the Cameroonian.
