Woman fined KES 25 000 for stocking poison in her chemist

07 August 2014, 16:23 Kelvin Wanjohi

Nyandarua - A middle-aged-woman was Wednesday fined KES 25 000 or in default serve three months in jail by a Nyahururu court for contravening the Pharmacy and Poisons Act.

Appearing before the Principal Resident Magistrate Peter Ndege, Esther Nyaguthi Thamani was charged that on May 13, 2014 officers from the medical department came across the accused in her chemist in possession of part 1 poisons in her chemist during an inspection in Nyahururu town, contrary to the Pharmacy and Poisons Act.

Fredrick Kimutai Lagat, a drugs inspector told the court that the officers found the poison in the Nyaguthi's chemist at an isolated plot in Nyahururu.

"We then arrested her and confiscated the drugs," narrated Kimutai.

Nyaguthi had been locked at the Nyahururu police station pending the hearing of her case.

In mitigation, she pleaded with the court for leniency saying that she was a single mother and the sole breadwinner of her family with no other source of income.
