Woman Who Used Presidential Staircase Charged after Insulting KICC OCS.



A 29-year-old woman was on Friday arraigned in a Nairobi court where she was charged with insulting a senior police officer.

Kincy Nangami Wafula, who was attending a Church conference, allegedly hurled insults after the officer cautioned her against using a presidential staircase at Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).

The court was told that the accused used offensive words on KICC OCS Catherine Otieno and Susan Misoi on March 31st.

“You are charged that on March 31st, 2022 in a public place namely KICC building within Nairobi County you used abusive words by calling Catherine Otieno, the KICC OCS and Susan Misoi ‘umbwa stupid, useless and f*ck you’ with intent to provoke a breach of peace,” read part of the charge sheet.

Kincy Nangami, who works for a Nairobi company, was looking for the washrooms when she bumped into the police officer. The officer was on patrol on the second floor of the building.

According to a police report, an altercation ensued after Nangami was stopped by the officer and questioned on why she was using the presidential staircase.

“On the material day, the KICC police station OCS was on patrol duties when she found the accused person using a staircase preserved for the president. She stopped her and cautioned her about the same but the accused became hostile,” reads a police report on the incident.

Nangami was later arrested and detained. The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges at the Milimani law courts and was released on a Ksh20,000 bond.
