President Ruto's PS Nominee Beat Wife Over Food, Court Told

Julius Korir, the candidate for Principal Secretary of Cabinet Affairs, was arraigned in court on Tuesday for the hearing of a case in which he is accused of beating his ex-wife.

Evelyn Koech spoke in court about the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of the PS nominee, claiming that when Mr. Korir got home one day and requested for food, he began beating her before she had a chance to react.

"I was putting our child to bed on that fateful day when my husband walked into the kids' room and yelled, "Leo utaniona, iko wapi chakula?" And the accuser started slapping me before I could respond. I was attempting to shield the infant from the blows," She told a story.

Evelyn claimed that the alleged batterer had previously beaten her, adding that the physical abuse had began in 2015 and persisted ever since.

"When I was three days away from giving birth", she recalled, "He beat me in front of his employees and other kids."

Evelyne, who appeared visibly upset, continued to tell the judge that she was fortunate not to have lost the baby after the beating.
