The gorvenment friendly forces who were now incharge had to break into the canteen to acces some food stuffs.
Later on, mbotela had to appear before the court matial to defend himself against being part of the coup plotters.
Unfortunately for the Journalist he didn't have a lawyer to defend him and therefore he had to appear alone to stand trial before a mzungu judge.
Mbotela also revealed that whereas he couldn't afford a lawyer, Hezekiah Ochuka the coup plotter was represented by Ford Kenya party leader and Bungoma Senator moses wetangula.
Bungoma senator Moses wetangula.
However after succeefully defending himself, mambombotela was acquited as Ochuka went to the gallows having been found guilty of overthrowing a legitimate government.

He expressed his disatisfaction over a new trend where young men and women don't respect elders.
