Man sentenced to two months in prison for threatening to harm his father

A 28-year-old man has been sentenced to two months in prison for threatening to harm his father.

Benson Musyoka reportedly threatened to harm his father, Musyoka Kisavu, for not taking care of his needs.

The court heard that the defendant, who is a carpenter, had been offered accommodation by his father, but continued to demand that he be provided with food and other basic necessities, demands that the old man could not satisfy.

Shortly after pleading guilty to the charges, Mombasa Senior Magistrate Vincent Adet ordered Benson Musyoka’s incarnation at Shimo La Tewa GK prison.

Pieces says;

“I think you are of legal age and it is not in your place to threaten to harm your father. When you confessed, you informed this court that you asked your father to take care of you in his old age, the court will sentence him to two months to make amends.”

The magistrate noted that the intervention of the local administration among the village elders and chiefs had not worked and therefore it was up to the court to restrain him.
