On Kenyan Police - again

No, this is not a joke. Another interesting case...

So the situation was like this - we're sitting at home with Alison, chilling out and having lazy Sunday evening. And then some persistent people tried to disturb us (read: rang the door) so we ignored them. But as some people just do not seem to get the clue - they tried to call us. But we did not want to be disturbed...

So in the morning I see that I got an SMS from my neighbor saying that my car was scratched by one of guests (there's a restaurant down there at my apartment). So I went down and... well, I would not call it a scratch. Just a smudge on the paintwork. In reality - nothing. If I went with this to the paint workshop they'd laugh at me. If it hadn't been pointed out to me I'd not see it myself.

But then... We found out the guy was taken to the Police station where he had to spend the night! I said WTF? I mean - why? So I had to go to the Kileleshwa Police Station this morning to tell them release him. I wasted 2 hours in the traffic just to say I have no grudge against this poor dude.

And no, you can not do this over the phone.

Kinda extreme to put guy into jail for a scratch that even was not there...

At least you know how they are dealing with that!
