Weitaithie MCA remanded for wrongly using DP’s photo

Weiteithie MCA will be remanded for five days for displaying the photo of Deputy President in a military gear on his matatu.

Appearing before Thika Magistrate Noel Kyanya, the court directed that the MCA be remanded at Juja police station as investigations continue.

Other than displaying the court of arms and the Kenyan flag, the matatu was also faulted by the Vehicle Inspection Unit for using tinted windows, defective safety belts, colored bulbs, and excess and lose seats.

The Kenyan law prohibits the display of the court of arms unless permission has been granted by relevant government bodies.

In addition to that, only the President, his deputy, the Chief Justice, parliament and Senate Speakers, Cabinet Secretaries and the Attorney General are allowed to display the Kenyan flag on their vehicles.
