Kenyans react after ODM MP receives 4-year jail sentence

He was sentenced on Thursday

The fine part however did not settle well with most Kenyans some terming it a mockery of the justice system in the country.

Here is how they reacted;

Joke of the day: Changamwe mp Omar mwinyi jailed for four years but pays 1million bond and is released... I cant

This Changamwe MP Omar Mwinyi judgement is a mockery to our justice system

Why are people condemning the sentence given to Changamwe MP Omar Mwinyi? Poor people are often forced to pay for basic police services. Yet the same policemen do the bidding of the rich. I applaud Mwinyi for whatever he did.

You can't jail a hooligan with money like Changamwe Mp Omar Mwinyi...... Its an abomination

Can't stop laughing a 1 million fine for "Changamwe MP Omar Mwinyi" . Justice has not been served.

So Kenya Judiciary sentence Changamwe MP Omar Mwinyi to 4 years imprisonment then Gives him an alternative of paying ksh 1m to avoid serving the 4 years. Well Done Court What a facade. This is total Bullshit.

You can imagine he will pay the fine, show us the middle finger and tell us to go to hell. Changamwe MP Omar Mwinyi is a disgrace but our courts are worse!

Changamwe Mp Omar Mwinyi i kno is laughing cz of the slap on the wrist he just got 4assaulting officers...meanwhile we hv this crazyness happening only in kenya

In short, Changamwe MP Omar Mwinyi has been asked by the court to forgo his one month salary in exchange for his freedom.

Can't these morons just be senetnced to jail with no option of a monetory fine.Changamwe MP Omar Mwinyi

Shouldn't the noble thing to do after this for "Changamwe MP Omar Mwinyi" be to step down? But hii ni Kenya.

When I first read the Changamwe Mp Omar Mwinyi sentence, I thought wow...finally justice...then I was hit by the OR 1million fine and I remembered I was in KenyaJokes on us!
