Alvin Linus Chivondo, the man who hit the headlines last month after being charged with shoplifting was back in court on Monday, for stealing again. Chivondo was set to appear before Milimani chief magistrate Wendy Micheni but before he could take plea, his file was recalled by the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The DPP discharged Chivondo after he agreed to be subjected to psychological examination at the Mathari Mental Hospital to ascertain his mental status.
Chivondo has agreed to refrain from violation of any law. “I acknowledge that in the event of a criminal arrest while on the diversion programme, the ODPP will have the option of terminating the programme," the letter reads.
