The story of a man who was brought to court in Nairobi (Kenya) for stealing from his girlfriend and gifting it to another girlfriend has created a strong debate among Kenyans.
According to Kenyan blogs, Ryan Lusalishi allegedly stole his girlfriend’s shoes and boots in November this year.
He allegedly took the shoes and gave them to another lover as a gift. The item was estimated to be worth 25 thousand and the stolen girlfriend named Elizabeth Okumu returned home and found some of her things missing.
“Lusalishi is also facing an additional charge of transporting stolen property contrary to section 323 of the penal code where he is alleged to have a bag and shoes believed to have been stolen or obtained illegally when he was arrested,” Nation said.
The man was brought before the Makadara court in Nairobi.
Another lover of Lusalishi told police during the investigation that he returned home with the items and gave her shoes that did not fit her.
He was arrested and the bag and shoes were found at his home.
In the case that created comedy on the internet, the man was released on Sh50,000 bail and an alternative cash guarantee of Sh30,000. The case will be mentioned on January 31, 2023, next year before it starts hearing on May 22, the same year.
