A ma identified as Fredrick Onyango Chere stunned the magistrate and lawyers after appearing in a white vest while attending a virtual court case. Fredrick is one of the accused persons who were involved in a 4.2 Billion scandal in Lake Basin Development Authority Shopping Mall in Kisumu.
The presiding Nairobi Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti immediately instructed Fredrick to log out of the session and come back later in descent attire. With the MOH strict protocols in regards to Covid-19, many court sessions are been held virtually and it was not yet clear to Fredrick the seriousness of the court hearing thus appearing casually dressed.[Photo courtesy]
Backed by lawyers Professor Tom Ojienda, State Counsel James Kihara and Katwa Kigen immediately raised the matter in support of the magistrate's concerns with reference to the court's ethics that dictate the dressing code of accused persons and counsels appearing in court.
