Employees steal KES 9M from bank

17 January 2013, 14:01 Wangui Joseph

A renowned international bank has sued four of its employees based in Nyeri over theft.

The four employees of Barclays Bank Kenya were arraigned before a Nyeri court on Wednesday where they were charged with stealing more than KES 9 million from the bank.

Patrick Wanjohi, Angello Adano, Timothy Mbaabu and Sammy Maina appeared before Chief Magistrate Wilbrodah Juma charged that on diverse dates between June 11, 2012 and January 2, 2013 being cashiers of Barclays Bank limited Nyeri branch, they stole KES 9 956 012 belonging to the bank which came into their possession by virtue of their employment.

They were represented by Counsel Remigeo Mugambi who applied for their release on bond.

The lawyer also urged the court to consider the fourth accused, Maina, before issuing the bond since he was posted to the branch in December last year and thus the amount he could have stolen is KES 350 000.

The magistrate released each of the first three accused on a KES 1 million bond with a surety of a similar amount while the fourth accused was released on a KES 500 000 bond with a similar surety.

However, the magistrate ordered the counsel be supplied with copies of witnesses’ statements and any other documents which the prosecution may use in the case.

The case was slated to proceed on March 5 this year.
