There was mixed reactions of shock
and laughter at a Nyahururu court
after a middle-aged woman admitted
stalking a 36 year old teacher.
The businesswoman, Susan
Nyambura, admitted sending love
messages to Anthony Gathekia calling
for love.
Nyahururu principal Magistrate Denis
Mikoyan heard that the trader at Ol
Jororok township in Nyandarua west
district had been stopping the primary
school teacher by the road several
times calling for love.
The court also heard that the woman
had visited the man several times at
his home to begging to be loved.
Standing steadily at the dock, the
woman admitted that it was love that
had caused her do all this.
“I love this man and I do not have the
intention of hurting him. This is just
pure love and I believe that the man
loves me to,” she told the magistrate
amid laughter from the courtroom.
The woman told the court that the
man had refused to love her and
pleaded that the man compelled to
love her.
“I only want to live with the man who
I believe is the love of my life and I
plead with the court to advise him to
love me. I would not have gone this
far if I did not have true love for him,”
she said.Asked if she knew that the man was
married with children, she said that
she only learnt of it last Sunday when
she visited his home.
She said that she found children
playing at the home while their
mother washing clothes outside.
The magistrate released Nyambura on
a Sh 5,000 cash bail awaiting ruling on
October 2 this year.
