Church robber subjected to community service

03 October 2013, 20:24 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - A church watchman accused of stealing electronic equipments from his employer was on Thursday put on a six-month probation by a Nyeri court.

Dennis Githinji Ndungi, 38, was ordered to offer free community service for six months by Resident Magistrate John Aringo after he was found guilty of theft charges.

Githinji was a watchman at the Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) in Ruring’u, and allegedly stole the electronics worth KES 749,000 while still on or away from his duty.

The prosecution, led by Inspector Catherine Wambua, told the court that Githinji jointly with others broke into the church and stole plasma TV screens, a Sony video camera and other electronics.

He also faced an alternative charge of failing to prevent the robbery which took place on February 11.

During the case proceedings, witnesses led by the church chairman, Ngunyi Nderitu, told court that they noticed there had been a robbery when they went for early morning prayers the following day.

The chairman said they interrogated the watchman about the incident but he claimed that he had been assaulted by a group of robbers who raided the church and tied him up with a wire.

However, according to Ngunyi, the watchman did not appear to have been assaulted, did not raise alarm even after the robbers left and was tied with a light string not a wire as he had claimed in court.

He will be working at Temple Road Primary School in Nyeri town for the time given under strict conditions to be issued by area probation officer.
