Two police officers accused of assaulting an advocate have been given up to Monday to settle the case out of court or face charges in default.

Chief magistrate Wendy Kagendo granted Benedict Mugo and Moses Labu Kangere until June 27 to try alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.

It is alleged that the two police officers assaulted Mr Joseph Kinuthia Nyambura on January 23, 2022 at around 12hrs within Dandora Police Station in Kamukunji sub-county, Nairobi County. The police officers allegedly caused the advocate body harm.

Lawyer Omari, who is the victim’s employer, appeared as a friend of the court and requested for an out-of-court settlement.

The matter will be mentioned on Monday.
