MP Gideon Mwiti Recounts Events in Rape Case, Now Claims They Went to Club With Woman From 9pm to 1am

Imenti Central MP Gideon Mwiti has asked for a DNA test over claims that he raped a former journalist.

Mwiti denied the allegations saying his relationship with the public relations practitioner was strictly professional.

Speaking at Gigiri police station where he recorded a statement on Monday, he said their meeting began at around 6.30pm and ended at 9pm.

He said they went to a club until around 1am after the meeting at his office in Westlands, Nairobi.

Mwiti initially denied meeting the woman, but later said a meeting took place between 5pm and 7pm.

“We met yesterday (Saturday) before 7pm before I went to Njugunas for a meeting with my constituents,” he told the Standard.

The MP is under investigation for allegedly luring the woman into his office with a business deal and raping her.

She claimed he postponed their meeting last Saturday until 10pm when he allegedly subjected her to an HIV/Aids test.

The test was carried out by a private doctor allegedly based in Ngara, whom the MP was with, says a police report she filed at Parklands police station.

The woman claimed Mwiti physically assaulted her before raping her after the results came back negative.

He allegedly held her at his office until 1.30am on Sunday.

Her husband said she called him from a toilet in the MPs office, in which she had locked herself.

He said she reported that the MP had made sexual advances at her, and asked him to pick her up, saying her phone was about to go off.

She checked herself into Nairobi Women’s Hospital where doctors said she was recuperating.
