Sympathy turns to anger as CJ Koome leaks Taka’s real story after his viral video caused outrage against Judiciary

After making Kenyans feel sorry for him following his emotional outburst in a Malindi Law Court that was captured on a video which went viral, the compassion for Carlos Taka by Kenyans has now evaporated and turned into anger after his full story was released to the public, and details of the despicable crime he allegedly committed revealed.

Taka had complained about having justice denied by having it delayed by the court system.
The Judiciary, however, in a lengthy press release, dismissed the claims by Taka. He is charged with fraud in a Malindi court.

Carlos Taka on Wednesday captured the attention of Kenyans on social media when a video of him dismissing the court as the worst in the world went viral.

He castigated the magistrate for delaying his case for a year saying justice denied is justice delayed.
“The impression being created in the public domain is a false narrative perpetuated by Mr. Taka’s statement in court on October 17, 2022,” the Judiciary said in a statement.
It said the case was being handled with all fairness possible.
In the video, Taka is seen shouting in court before Malindi Resident Magistrate Olga Onalo.
“I have spent more than one year in remand just because some witnesses failed to testify. This is the most useless court in the world,” he said.

The Judiciary has now come out to disclose that the said Taka, who was charged on October 12, 2021, was offered a bond despite objections by the Investigating Officer.

The officer had told court that since Taka has no known place of residence and Identity Card, his availability in court if release would not be guaranteed.
“Despite this, the court upheld his right to bond and he was granted bond of Sh200,000 and a surety of like amount. At his request, it was later reviewed and reduced to Sh150,000,” the statement from the Judiciary directorate of public affairs and communication said.
The statement further said the Prosecution had presented four witnesses to the stand, and only two were remaining.
On Wednesday, the Prosecution requested for a last adjournment to allow them call one complainant and the Investigating Officer.

Magistrate Onalo granted the ODPP’s prayers and set the hearing date for December 14, 2022.
Taka is facing five counts of obtaining money by false pretenses contrary to Section 313 of the Penal Code and one count of impersonating a public officer contrary to Section 105(a) of the Penal Code.
He defrauded his victims on diverse dates by falsely claiming that he could help them land employment and by impersonating an employee in the Presidential Delivery Unit.
