Court releases suspected manufacturers of fake money

26 November 2013, 13:35 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Two people suspected to be manufacturers of fake currency were on Tuesday released on bond of KES 100,000 by a Nyeri court after they denied the charges.

Mary Njambi Wamuyu, 18, and Martin Ndung’u Wanyeri, in his 30s, denied that they were unlawfully and knowingly found in possession of four money minting papers on November 24 at Kangemi Estate in Nyeri town.

The prosecution told the court that the four papers bearing serial numbers BF3239547 and BF3230248 were intended to resemble and pass as special papers such as is provided and used in making currency notes.

The papers were meant to and without authority manufacture currency notes of KES 1,000 denomination, prosecution added.

Ndung’u was also accused of fraudulently obtaining KES 5,000 from Eva Wanjiru under the pretext that he was in a position to get her a Samsung Galaxy tablet from Nairobi.

He allegedly committed the offence on November 20 in Nyeri town, an offence he denied.

The case will be heard on January 21, 2014 with a mention on December 9, 2013.
