Chief Magistrate Edna Nyaloti heard that Muna was arrested on March 15 at the Moi International Airport as she attempted to fly to Belgium using a fake Czech passport.

Further the court was informed that on the same day and place, with an intention to travel to Belgium, she presented a forged Czech passport to an Immigration officer purporting that the same was issued to her by the Czech government authorities a fact she knew was false.

Muna, who pleaded guilty, will serve 38 months in jail if she cannot pay the fine.
