Two fined KES 50 000 for illegally possessing KDF jackets

09 April 2014, 11:26 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Two middle aged men have been fined KES 50 000 each or serve six months in prison by a Nyeri court after they admitted to charges of illegally possessing two Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) jungle sweaters.

Eric Munene and Samson Wambugu were charged that on March 8, at Kamakwa area in the suburbs of Nyeri town, they were found wearing the KDF sweaters which were believed to have been obtained unlawfully.

The prosecutor, Catherine Wambua, who produced the sweaters in court as exhibit, said the accused were arrested at local pub by administration police officers who got a tip off from members of the public.

In mitigation, the two, who said they were electrical technicians, pleaded for leniency saying they bought the sweaters from a secondhand clothes vendor at Kangundo market.

They said they were not aware that the sweaters were government property.

Considering their mitigation, chief magistrate Wilbrodah Juma noted that currently some criminals are deceiving members of the public by putting on police or army uniforms to perpetuate criminal activities.

She doubted that the two were not aware that the clothes belonged to armed forces arguing that if they were interested in wearing such sweaters, they could have sought for opportunity to join KDF.
