Kibera Magistrate caught red handed receiving bribe (EVIDENCE)! MARAGA should read this and stop burying his head in the sand

…fine of KSh 30,000 or 3 months in jail. 

I had been told to expect a fine of up to 10,000. I was gobsmacked. I was led to the side of the court with remandees and convicted guys. A cop came and asked me if I was ready to pay the fine. I offered to pay by MPESA. He said cash would be easier. Eventually I was called to the desk in front of the magistrate to pay the fine.

As I started to do the transaction using the PayBill number posted on the wall, I was told by the orderly not to use it and she then entered an agent number into my phone and asked me to put in the amount and PIN.

I was taken back to my seat and eventually given a judiciary receipt. And just in the nick of time because as I got out of the court the cops started clearing the way to come through with remandees and convicted persons who hadn't paid fines. 

So.. there is something fishy going on in Magistrate Kuto's court. At the most benign, there is a problem with how the payments are made possibly set up to profit private enterprises from transaction fees instead of using the judiciary PayBill.

At worst there is a suspicious combination of harsh hefty fines and questionable handling of fines paid. 

I was encouraged to write to the judiciary ombudsman and a services email. None responded. I was lucky to be able to pay and get out of there.

The judiciary keeps parroting its commitment to non-custodial sentences and strengthening the rule of law.

You won't get that by jailing touts for three months and giving people incentive to pay bribes on the road and avoid court.
