Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi, however, released him and even joked that probably the accused had vowed to enjoy a meal at Java in his lifetime.

“Ambatsa, yaani uliamua lazima ukule Java kabla ufe,” the magistrate posed as the courtroom burst into laughter.

Michael Masinza Ambatsa, a hawker in Nairobi who was unable to settle a Sh1310 at a Java outlet, has been freed by the court.

According to documents seen by Ureport, the suspect was accused of failing to pay after ordering chips, chicken and a litre of juice.

The incident happened at Java Kimathi Street on December 16, 2019.


Ambatsa pleaded guilty and told the court that he regretted his actions.

“I admit that I made a stupid mistake ordering a meal and drink that I wasn’t in a position to pay for,” he said.
