β€’ The Judiciary has denied its courts ever delivered such a judgment.

β€’ A Milimani Small Claims Court supposedly made this landmark ruling and ordered her to repay the facilitation.

A story of a Kenyan woman fined sh23,750 for allegedly eating fare went viral and excited a section of online users.

The story claimed that a court fined the woman the fine Sh 20k  for emotional damage and 750 interest accrued.

According to the fake report, the boyfriend accused the woman of switching off her phone after receiving the money, subjecting the boyfriend to emotional torture. It is now emerging that that was a fake story.

The Judiciary has clarified that no such judgment was delivered in any of its courts.

The reactions were funny and are below;

@FlexxKELakini Mbona mko na hiyo Roho πŸ™„πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ Yaani hamuwezi Wacha tujinice ata kama ni fake news πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

@ongaya94 Sad that the Judiciary took two days to confirm that the story is fake.

@jben3595221 But it's fascinating. You don't have to say it's fake. πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

@wakili_254 Yaani judiciary can't appreciate the veracity of the subject matter??

@boishoikenya He Judiciary mbona mnachoma.

@franky_kilungu Mngekanyagia hii kitu bana.... Hao watu walikuwa washaanza kutetemeka πŸ˜„

@leriwanka Mngenyanaza tu. Magaidi walikuwa wamepata adabu.

The mentioned woman received sh3,000 from the man for fare but the woman turned off her phone after she received the money, causing the boyfriend to emotionally torture her.

However, the judiciary flagged the story as fake and misleading to the public.

The judiciary, headed by Chief Justice Martha Karambu Koome, claimed the case was not heard or referred to the Milimani Law Courts, as indicated.
