  • A Nairobi based TV producer was Tuesday arraigned in a Kakamega court where she was accused of sending over 500 abusive text messages to two Administration Police (AP) officers.

    Sheila Mulinya is said to have sent Constable Brenda Mukolwe and her husband Inspector James Makomere, both working in Kakamega, the numerous messages between April 14 and May 2015.

    "Mulinya has ceaselessly and continuously authored and communicated hate messages by way of SMS to the plaintiffs by use of her mobile phones to the effect that the two are individually and jointly persons of loose morals and mentally unstable," read the plaint. 

    In what seemed to be a love triangle brawl, the accused argued that she was provoked into the exchange by constable Mukolwe, adding that she was Makomere's girlfriend and that Brenda knew about it. 

    "Our marriage was customary and there was no dowry paid. What I know is that there are arrangements to make the dowry payments," said Brenda when asked whether she was indeed married to Makomere. 

    The policewoman, however, admitted that in the face of the exchange she also sent two SMSs to the accused, which she read out in court arguing they were not equally abusive as the ones she received. 

    Senior Resident Magistrate James Ong'ondo, set the case for hearing on June 21, when Makomere is also expected to testify.   ©   2018   All Rights Reserved
