Alvin Linus Chivondo, the man who hit the headlines last month after being charged with shoplifting was back in court on Monday, for stealing again.

Chivondo was set to appear before Milimani chief magistrate Wendy Micheni but before he could take plea, his file was recalled by the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The DPP discharged Chivondo after he agreed to be subjected to psychological examination at the Mathari Mental Hospital to ascertain his mental status.

Through a written agreement signed by the DPP and Chivondo’s lawyer the DPP said public interest will be served by not charging him.

“After the investigation of the offences and conduct of background check, it appears the interest of the public and your own will best be served by not charging you,” the agreement reads in part.

Chivondo has agreed to refrain from violation of any law.

Travellers heading to Mandera town were held hostage by suspected Al-Shabaab militants on Wednesday and lectured for two hours, according to a report filed at the Kotulo Police Station.

Police said an unknown number of heavily armed Al-Shabaab militants stopped an Al-Mukaram company passenger bus at Lag Mata Kuta, between Dabacity and Dimu hill, and ordered passengers out.

They “searched for non-locals for more than two hours. The bus was heading to Mandera from Nairobi,” the report said.

After thoroughly searching for non-locals in vain, they gave a long speech in Somali language which most of the passengers didn’t comprehend.”

All the travellers were released and proceeded on their trip. They arrived safely in Mandera later in the day.

Security officers at roadblocks have since been directed not to allow any non-local to travel on the B9 road between Kotulo and Elwak.
