A 24-year-old woman from Kasarani in Nairobi was accused of locking her parents out of their own home, which led them to seek shelter at their neighbor's place. She faced charges for causing a disturbance in a way that could potentially disrupt peace.
Faith Mokeira has been alleged to engage in the act of throwing household objects outside and yelling at her father, David Nyambane, while also locking him out of his own residence in the Marurui locality on May 8.
Upon his arrival at approximately 8pm, Mr. Nyambane discovered his wife outside the dwelling. Upon questioning her, he was informed that their daughter had locked herself inside the house.
He begged her to unlock the house, but according to reports, she refused and proceeded to swear at him while throwing various household objects at him and the people outside the house.
The parents of the accused individual went to the Marurui police post and informed the authorities about the incident. However, they were unable to enter the house as Ms. Mokeira, who completed her university studies in 2021, declined to let them in, forcing them to spend the night outside.
Mr. Nyambane and his wife went back to the police station the following day and filed another report, prompting the police officers to visit their home. In order to allow the police to enter his house, Mr. Nyambane had to ask one of his neighbors if he could borrow a ladder. Once inside, the police discovered that Ms. Mokeira had allegedly broken the windows and damaged other belongings.
As a result, she was arrested and escorted out of the house. As the police conducted their investigation, Ms. Mokeira accused her father of violating her privacy by bringing an electrician to her room for repairs without informing her beforehand.
When she appeared before Senior Principal Magistrate Agnes Mwangi at the Makadara Law Courts, Ms. Mokeira pleaded not guilty to the charges. She was granted release on bail in the amount of Sh4,000.
