Police have launched a manhunt for the former UN- employee and 2022 Presidential hopeful Dr Mukhisa Kituyi, who was accused of assaulting a lady at a Mombasa hotel.


Confirming the incident, Mombasa County regional commander  Paul Ndambuki yesterday stated that detectives were looking for Kituyi after he failed to appear before the DCI to record a statement.


“He seems to be elusive and the next course of action is to send detectives from where the complaint was lodged.


“The sleuths will liaise with detectives in Nairobi or any other location where he will be found to enable us to record his statement and prefer relevant charges against him,” Ndambuki stated.


This follows police Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai’s earlier order directing the Coast police boss to launch a formal inquiry into the allegations fronted against Dr. Kituyi.


Hillary noted that there were contradictory information regarding the case of one stating that the case had been solved amicably and withdrawn. While on the contrary, police insisted that the victim, Diana Opemi Lutta, was willing to proceed with the case.


Further information privy to the case indicates that Dr. Mukhisa had reached out to the woman to solve the case amicably and out of court.

The prosecution also stated that it had aligned a number of witnesses to testify in the case including  two guards and the hotel staff.


“Detectives have already recorded statements of four other witnesses who saw what transpired,” Ndambuki pointed out.


Dr Kiutyi the former Secretary-General for the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), has however declined the claims of assaulting the woman.


“Someone had written a report claiming I had assaulted her but it was not true. I’ve never beaten any woman in my life nor do I intend to ever do it at any given time. We sorted out the case and it was withdrawn,” Kituyi’s public statement read.
