A Jubilee politician has been handed a one month jail term after failing to pay a Sh1.5 million debt.

Karisa Nzai, former Jomvu Kuu MCA, was ordered to settle Javaco Agencies Limited’s debt but defied the court order, Senior principal magistrate Francis Kyambia said.

A Mombasa court had ordered Nzai to pay up before June, 2017.


“The defendant has not made any attempt to pay the debtor and as such he will start serving a civil jail term of 30 days,” the magistrate said.

Nzai has been on a losing streak having lost a petition challenging Jomvu MP, Badi Twalib’s win.
