Very recently, a resident of Bahati Estate Nairobi sued his neighbor for pouring urine at his doorstep. The name of the accuse person is Asman Masimba. He was sued by his next door neighbor.
His neighbor, Antony Kariuki reported the incident to Jogoo Road police station. He accused Asman of using abusive language.
In addition to this, Asman had poured urine at his doorstep. The incident happened on Saturday 15th February.
Asman showed up at Kariuki’s doorstep on Saturday. He started hurling insults at Kariuki and used abusive language.
A local news station reported that Kariuki warned Asman to stop several times. Despite the warning, Asman went ahead and poured urine at the doorstep.
The incident attracted the attention of other neighbors. They all gathered around to see what was happening. When the neighbors asked Asman the reason why he was being mischevious, Asman became very unruly.
Eventually, the neighbors decided to take him to the police station. With the help of his neighbors, Kariuki nabbed Asman.
They took him to Jogoo Road police station. Police officers kept him in police custody as required by law.
The police officers later arraigned him in Makadara Law Courts. He appeared before Senior Principal Magistrate Angelo Kithinji.
Asman was charged with the offense of offensive conduct.
The charges were read to him. Asman did not deny the charges. He pleaded guilty to the charge. Further, he admitted to the facts of the case.
After listening to the facts of the case, Magistrate Kithinji ordered for a probation report. A probation officer will investigate Asman and present a report to the magistrate.
Once the report is presented in court, the magistrate will decide on sentencing.
The magistrate adjourned the case to 6th March 2020. Kariuki and the rest of Asman’s neighbors wait to see how the sentencing will go.
Asman remains in custody as he awaits sentencing.
This incident has happened just a few weeks after residents in Nairobi sued one of their neighbors.
According to his neighbors, the accused neighbor terrorizes the whole neighborhood with his loud music. Previously, the compound was very peaceful especially on weekends.
The new neighbor did not take his time to learn how things work in his new neighborhood.
The landlady was contacted several times but she took no action. For this reason, the tenants decided to deal with the matter themselves.
