A Member of Kisii County Assembly Evans Omwansu Mokoro has claimed that defilement allegations against him were stage-managed by his political opponents with an aim to taint his political image.
The Moticho MCA, speaking on Thursday outside Ogembo Law courts after a defilement case against him was dismissed, blamed his opponents saying the ill plans could not work.
"My opponents wanted me jailed by coming up with the false allegations purposed to ensure that my intention to run for South Mugirango MP seat in 2022 does not sail through. I am happy the case has been dismissed due to lack of witnesses because indeed this was not true," he stated.
The MCA said he has forgiven the opponents saying he will now focus on serving the people of Moticho.
Ogembo Senior Principal Magistrate Dennis Mikoyan while dismissing the defilement case noted that there was no witnesses appearing for the case despite the matter being brought to court for hearing several times.
The magistrate further said lack of witnesses for the cases was an indication that the complainant was unwilling to pursue the case.
