Eastmatt assault: DPP orders arrest of Ibrahim Taraiya

The Director of Public Prosecution has ordered the arrest of Ibrahim Taraiya, the man who was seen assaulting a female cashier from Eastmatt Supermarket in Kitengela.

This comes just hours after the retailer had released a statement saying the man had been suspended and that they had referred the matter to Kajiado Police Station.

“The ODPP has ordered for immediate arrest of Ibrahim Taraiya, a supervisor at Eastmatt Supermarket in Kajiado for assaulting a teller,” the DPP statement reads.

Taraiya, the DPP said, will be arraigned in court on Monday to take plea on the assault charges to be leveled against him.

In the video, Taraiya is seen slapping the cashier several times before pulling her by the hair and then hitting her again numerous times.

It took awhile before an unidentified man intervened and grabbed Taraiya’s hands from the back, saving the cashier from a further beating.

The assault is said to have taken place on Friday, November 22.

Eastmatt management said the cashier is receiving medical treatment and that they do not condone physical abuse of employees.
