A bar owner who threatened to kill a waiter by slashing her with a panga has been charged with the offence of threatening to kill.
Mercy Kananu Koome was charged on Thursday before Kibera senior Principal Magistrate Monica Maroro. She denied the charges.
According to the charge sheet, the accused person committed the offence on September 15 at Kangemi location in Dagoretti Sub-County within Nairobi County.
She allegedly uttered the said words to Ann Njeri who was by then serving customers at a local pub.
The reason to why the accused person committed the offence was not revealed in court.
The accused person urged the court to grant her a lenient bond term.

The magistrate released her on an Sh100,000 bond with an alternative cash bail of Sh50,000.
Maroro directed that the matter be mentioned early next month for a mention where she will be supplied with witness statements and documentary evidence
