Kibera Law Courts on Thursday rejected seven suspects who showed up at the courts allegedly too drunk to stand trial.
The suspects allegedly blacked out at the court precincts forcing Principal Magistrate Esther Bokhe to throw them out.
The seven were part of more than 200 people arrested in a swoop conducted by police in Huruma area.
A section of Kenyans questioned how the suspects arrived drunk despite spending the night in police custody.
“How did they arrive at the courts drunk? If anything by today morning they were supposed to have sobered up having spent the night in police custody,” said one resident.
The Kenya Prisons Service (KPS) has however denied reports that the suspects were not in their custody.
“Our attention has been drawn to photographs and derisive messages circulating on social media regarding drunken suspects outside the Kibera Law Courts earlier today.
“While the six were intoxicated, which prompted the deferment of the hearing of their cases, we would like to clarify that they were not in our custody as wrongly reported,” said KPS.
