A woman was handed 6-month jail sentence for causing traffic while having sex in her car
A Kenyan woman caused traffic congestion while having sex in her car on Thika Road. She was fined Ksh20,000 and will serve a six-month sentence in jail.
After pleading guilty to the charges that she caused a disturbance and obstructed traffic at Thika Road Mall, Roysambu, on January 24, 2023, the motorist, whose identity has been withheld was sentenced by a Makadara law court.
This came after the court was informed that she was arrested by traffic officers from Kasarani Police Station who were manning the road near the Thika Road Mall.
She was in a compromising situation with a man at the wheel of her car, which was stopped in the middle of the road. It is not clear why they chose to have sex on a busy road.
According to the prosecution, the officers politely interrupted their session and requested that the lovebirds move to the driveway. However, they were met with hostility.
The prosecutor said;
“Enraged by the police request to drive away, the accused person began hurling insults at the officers who were armed and even reportedly dared them to open fire.”
Officers immediately lodged a report of the drama that unfolded to their boss at Kasarani Police Station. He then sent reinforcement who overpowered the two lovers who were arrested.
The lady who admitted that the facts of the case were correct during her trial, urged the court to forgive her saying she is remorseful and will never repeat the acts again.
The magistrate fined her Ksh10,000 for each offense or an alternative of six months imprisonment. She has 14 days to appeal.
