Kangemi Bar Owner Slashes Waitress

She allegedly said the words to Ann Njeri, who was serving customers at a nearby pub at the time.

A bar owner who slashed a waitress with a panga and threatened to kill her has been arraigned in court.

Mercy Kananu Koome was charged before Kibera Senior Principal Magistrate Monica Maroro on Thursday.
She denied the allegations.

According to the charge sheet, the accused committed the crime on September 15 in Kangemi, Dagoretti Sub-County, Nairobi County.

She allegedly said the words to Ann Njeri, who was serving customers at a nearby pub at the time.

The reason why the accused committed the crime was not disclosed in court.
The accused petitioned the court for a lenient bond term.


She informed the court that she was unable to meet the unrealistic bond terms.


The magistrate set her bond at Sh100,000 with an alternative cash bail of Sh50,000.


Maroro requested that the matter be brought up again early next month for a hearing at which she will be provided with witness statements and documentary evidence.
