Before the law was amended, the fine was K500,000, and imprisonment could be up to two years.

Both Alliance for Democracy (AFORD) Sapitwa region chairman Maxton Namaona hailed the Commission for the revised laws, which include punitive fines, while senior chief Ndalama has pledged to bring the changes to the community.
