Meru man Pius Mugendi in court


Meru man Pius Mugendi sentenced to one-year imprisonment with an alternative of a fine of Ksh80,000 for stealing a woman’s innerwear by a Meru court.



According to court statements, Pius Mugendi broke into Juliet Mawia’s residence and stole six inner pants worth Ksh1500.


Juliet Mawia said to the court that she noticed that one of her panties had departed from the hanging line to her window at around 3:00 am.


She had to wake up her husband who accompanied her to check the CCTV surveillance footage. They saw that an unknown person had invaded their compound.


“On checking the CCTV footage, we noticed that someone was picking my inner wears as he tried to evade the CCTV cameras,” she said.


Following the information taken to court, the court’s magistrate found that the trial had proven their case and Mudendi was guilty of the offence.


The suspect, however, denied stealing the underwear on May 28, 2020, at Mikimbi Village, Embu County.


“I have a wife and children, I pray for leniency from the court,” Mugendi pleased with the court.


Embu Senior Resident Magistrate Juliana Ndeng’eni ruled that the court has pondered his mitigations but fined him Ksh80,000 for the annoying behaviour.


“Though he seems remorseful for his act, he engaged in disrespectful and annoying deed and the court has fined him Ksh80,000 or serve one-year imprisonment,” the magistrate judged.
