Nyeri - A businessman was Tuesday arraigned in a Murang’a town court over bounced cheques.
Stephen Murigu was accused of issuing the cheques to the complainant, Ann Nyakinyua Kihoro who had supplied him with goods worth KES 594 920.
The court heard that the complainant received the first cheque of KES 167 110 on June 4, 2014 but when she presented it to Equity bank it bounced.
The accused managed to convince the complainant to supply him with more goods as he allegedly sorted out the problem with the bank.

She was later issued with another cheque which also bounced, prompting her to report the issue to police.
However, appearing before senior principal magistrate Thomas Nzioki, the accused denied the charges saying that he had been paying the complainant the money in cash since the first cheque had bounced.
The case comes up for hearing on August 7, 2015 as the accused was released on KES 100 000 cash bail.
