The Principal Secretary nominee for Cabinet Affairs Julius Korir was on Tuesday arraigned in court for the hearing of a case where he is charged with assaulting his ex-wife.

Evelyn Koech narrated to the court how she was allegedly beaten by the PS nominee, stating that Mr. Korir returned home one day and asked for food but, before she could respond, he had already started beating her.

"On the fateful day, I was putting our child to bed when my husband walked into the children’s bedroom and shouted ‘Leo utaniona, iko wapi chakula?’ And before I answered the accused started slapping me. I was trying to protect the baby from the slaps," she narrated.

Evelyn said that that was not the first time she received beatings from the accused, adding that the physical violence started in 2015 and continued all through the years

"There's a time when I was three days to delivery…he beat me in front of his workers and other children," she said.

An emotional Evelyne further told the court that she was lucky not to have lost the baby following the beating.
