Comediennes Samantha ‘Gonyeti’ Kureya and Sharon ‘Maggie’ Chideu were on Tuesday fined $20 each by the police for criminal nuisance over her skit featured on Busstop Television depicting police brutality named #charitycharambachallenge.
The law under which they were fined reads:
“Wearing of uniforms, badges, etc. of Police Force. Any person who wears any uniforms or distinctive badge or button of the Police Force or anything which might reasonably be mistaken for any such uniform, badge or button as to be likely to deceive, shall, unless— (a) he is a member of the Police Force entitled by reason of his appointment, rank or designation to wear such uniform, badge or button; or (b) he has been granted permission by the Commissioner to wear such uniform, badge or button; be guilty of an offence and liable to a fine not exceeding level five or to imprisonment for a period not exceeding six months or to both such fine and such imprisonment.”
