Being an accused man on the docks can be a very scary thing. Not only are you facing the possibility of a jail sentence, but you are also facing the possibility of being RAPED in jail! Very scary! So the last thing an accused man should be thinking about is going for a toilet break.
But the body has no manners, if you have to go, you have to!
A man accused of stealing from a locked car left a Nairobi court in stitches when he requested for a break to deal with a running stomach. William Kamau Maina, 33, was accused that on December 4, 2017, at Kenafric Industries in Nairobi jointly with others not before the court, he broke and entered into a vehicle belonging to Veronica Mwangi and stole Sh319,900.
Police said that she unlocked the car using remote key only to realize at home that one of the doors had been tampered with and the cash stolen.
She reported the matter to police who launched investigations and with the help of CCTV footage spotted the car that had trailed her. In the CCTV footage, the suspect is seen tampering with the vehicle before boarding the waiting vehicle. But Mwangi could not hold it in any longer. He said:
“Allow me to rush to the toilet because I have a running stomach. In fact, I’ve spent most of the time in the toilet because of that problem.”
Hehehe! The stomach has refused to co-operate!
