A Kabarnet law court on Friday dismissed the trial of a Kabianga university dropout after his parents agreed to forgive him and withdraw charges of creating a disturbance.
Resident Magistrate Viennah Amboko in her ruling urged the accused to go back to university and complete his Human Resource Management degree course for a brighter future.
Vincent Barkulet Chebet had been charged that on February 24, 2021 at Akoriyan village in Bartum location Baringo south sub-county he created disturbance in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace.
He had pleaded guilty to the charges and asked the court to forgive him.
The court heard that the accused caused breach of peace by shouting and threatening to attack Christopher Chebet and Talai Chebet who are his parents.
“He has gotten into bad company in the village and all they do is take alcohol and come home asking for more money for alcohol,” Talai, the mother said.
Talai asked the magistrate to talk to him to go back to Kabianga University where he was studying until 2019 when he dropped out.
“This is my last born son and I really want him to finish his university education. All my other children have gone through university,” she said.
In his statement, Christopher, the father of the accused told the court that he had decided to forgive his son and give him another chance to reform.
The Magistrate told the parents of the accused not to hesitate to report him if he repeats the same.
The accused promised not to repeat the offense and also promised to go back to university and complete his higher education
