Anglican Bishop Charged With Attempting To Kiss Woman And Touch Her Breasts

A Bishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK), Joel Waweru, has been charged with attempting to physically contact and kiss a woman without her consent.

Waweru, who was arraigned at Kibra Law Court on Tuesday, January 11, rejected the two sexual assault charges.

According to a charging document obtained by K24 Digital, the cleric allegedly committed the crime on several occasions in Nairobi County’s Lang’ata Sub-County. The woman informed the authorities that the Bishop had told her on multiple times that she was lovely and that he liked her.
The woman went on to say that the Bishop was obsessed with her, despite the fact that she was married. She went on to say that the fixation drove her to file a complaint since she felt vulnerable and frustrated.

Waweru pled not guilty to the charges and requested a reduced bond term at his court appearance. He was released on a ksh50,000 cash bail by the magistrate.

 “He will be released on a ksh50,000 cash bail and the matter will be brought here after a fortnight,” Derrick Kuto ruled.
