A man has been charged with failing to pay sh6,710 bill incurred while making merry with a woman she met at an entertainment joint.
Evans Owino was charged at the Kibera law courts in Nairobi where he was accused of incurring the debt at Hacienda Sport Bar and Grill in Westlands, Nairobi, on October 5, while falsely pretending he was in a position to pay.
The suspect is said to have walked alone in the restaurant and ordered a beer and a soda and went on taking his drinks untill woman joined him.
He thereafter ordered more drinks and grilled meat for himself and the woman.
Suspicious, a barman reportedly asked for payment because his bill was rising fast but insisted there was no cause of alarm and went on with merry-making.
When he asked for more drinks, the barman ordered him to clear the first bill and upon failure to do so, police were called in and Owino and his partner were arrested.
The woman was later released as she had not ordered any drinks.
Owino was released on a Sh10,000 cash bail and an alternative bond of a similar amount.
