Kenya:Woman charged will illegal possession of ammunition
By Samuel Ouma
A Kenyan woman has been charged for being in possession of 30 rounds of ammunition.
Appearing before Embu Principal Magistrate Henry Nyakwemba, Loise Muthoni pleaded not guilty claiming the ammunitions belong to his lover who allegedly let them in her house without her knowledge.
She was released on Sh.50, 000 cash bail or Sh.100, 000 bond with a surety of similar amount.
Muthoni’s plea to have her bond terms reduced fell into deaf years after the Magistrate turned down her request.
“You should have investigated the character of your boyfriend before falling in love with him. I can’t reduce the bond because what you are telling the court cannot be ascertained since the dangerous items were allegedly found in your house,” emphasized Nyakwemba.
The suspect was arrested on July 19 in Embu West Sub-County, Eastern of Kenya. The police discovered the bullets wrapped with a magazine in her house.
The case will be heard on August 19, 2020.
