Truly money and power can twist a man’s head once it lodges deep into a man’s blood and thinking.
Kenya has witnessed many powerful people go down because of undermining those below them to the extent of mistreating the common mwananchi in front of the public eye.
Joining the list of those learning their lesson the harsh way is man caught on camera threatening a Kileleshwa security guard with a gun on Saturday, March 16, who has been charged.
Kevin Obia, a Kenyan, who earlier reports indicated that he was a foreigner, appeared before Milimani Court Senior Principal Magistrate Peter Ooko on Thursday.
The watchman had reported the incident at Kileleshwa Police station leading to the arrest of Obia.
The charge sheet read that on March 16, at Vue Claire Place on Siaya Road, he threatened to kill Yohana Imbwaka, a security guard, without lawful excuse and while armed with a pistol.
On the second account he was accused of behaving disorderly while carrying a firearm. Obia, however, denied the two accounts.
The court released him on a cash bail of Sh500, 000 with an alternative bond of Sh1 million.
