Paralympics boss Oluoch arrested over assault
Kenya National Paralympics Committee (KNPC) President Agnes Oluoch has been arrested for allegedly assaulting Kenya Table Tennis Association boss, Andrew Mudibo.
Reports indicate the KNPC boss was picked up by authorities at Nairobi’s Industrial Area on Friday afternoon before she was later released on a Ksh10,000 cash bail, three days after she was involved in a physical altercation with Mudibo.
The pair were on the deep end of a chaotic conclusion to Tuesday’s Extra Ordinary Meeting for National Olympics Committee-Kenya (Nock) stakeholders that that saw a bid to amend the national body’s Constitution fail to garner the required two-thirds majority that would have seen it formally adopted.
Reacting to the news Mudibo, who had in the aftermath suggested the matter would be resolved outside of court, said the two later opted to ‘follow the path of the law’.
“This is private matter between me and Agnes and it’s only fair that it’s mediated by the law. I would like to leave at that so that privacy is maintained and request that she is given that sort of respect,” Mudibo told Citizen Digital.
After the incident, both rushed to Nairobi’s Industrial Area Police Station to lodge formal complaints against each other.
Later, Mudibo affirmed it was only a formality and that the issue would be resolved amicably.
“I know I played my part but I was yet to know she’s been arrested. What needed to be done was done. Everything else is upon the police to carry out the investigation or proceed in any way necessary.
“Whatever happened on Tuesday was not in the agenda of the meeting and so right now my focus is whatever is happening at the National Olympics Committee of Kenya. The rest are just sideshows,” he told Citizen Digital.
