Kenyan Billionaire Appears For Court Session Half-Naked

In his years as a magistrate, Douglas Ogoti had never witnessed court indecency to this extent. Today Fredrick Chere appeared for virtual court session wearing only a vest. He was to answer a case in which he is being accused of embezzling funds of up to 4.1 billion meant for Lake Basin Development Authority (LBDA).

Proffessor Tom Ojienda faulted the dressing form of the accused and asked the magistrate to order Chere to dress properly. After deliberations Chere was asked to log out momentarily to go and dress properly before the court session could continue.

This is one of the challenges of virtual interactions. Kenya like most countries is trying to move most of its operations online. This is an effort to dissuade physical contact in a move to curb the spread of coronavirus. In an almost similar case in United States, a surgeon appeared on live court session while operating a patient.

Many agencies and institutions will need to institute laws on virtual meetings. Schools in Kenya are also facing similar challenges when teaching online. Despite people working from home, there is need for decency when appearing on a live session.
