Kenya has “pardoned” one of Africa’s most wanted burglar in a what appears to be a slap on the wrist.
Ms Margaret Waithira was arrested at the JKIA as she attempted to take a flight to Dar Es- Salaam. She has been accused of burgling houses all over Africa.
On Friday, pleaded guilty to break-ins and stealing at Kibera law court. She was fined Sh100K or 18 months imprisonment.
Police said she still has pending cases in court. She has two previous convictions.
Her arrest at JKIA marked the end of a cat and mouse chase that Ms Kamande has engaged with Interpol and Kenyan detectives for years.
She entered the list of Interpol wanted criminals after she jumped bail granted by a Zimbabwean court in A burglary offence.
She was later arrested with two others in a Tanzanian nightclub.
During the arrest, they were found in possession of door master keys, bunches of house keys and a crowbar that police in Zimbabwe believe was used to break into doors.
