A Nairobi Traffic Court arrested an intoxicated lady after she fell asleep during the hearing.
On September 22nd, Sharon Oparanya appeared in court before magistrate Martha Nanzushi to address the charge of drunk driving.
The Magistrate asked the orderlies to identify the person snoring in court after she started snoring loudly while nodding off on the bench.
“Hold on! The magistrate asked, “Why is she snoring in court, is that someone sleeping in my court?
Oparanya was inebriated, the court orderly responded, which is why she was dozing off in the audience.
She is inebriated, your honor, which is why she is dozing off in court, the officer stated.
The magistrate decided that Oparanya should remain in custody at Lang’ata Women’s Prison until Friday, when she will answer to the charges.
In the charge sheet submitted to the court by the DPP, Oparanya is accused of “driving a Mercedes-Benz on a public road while under the influence of alcohol to such an extent as to be unable of having proper control of the said motor vehicle” on September 22, 2022, at 7:35 am along Ngong Road.
