The Judge in charge of the case noted the incident as the second one in a row stealing the same product.

She then advised the 70-year-old man to go back to the village so as to get away from all the shame he is undergoing.

In his defense, Macharia blamed witchcraft for his predicaments as he wondered why he would steal the same product from Naivas Supermarket only.
