Insurance Co. gives 3M for lost bus

22 January 2013, 14:13 Wangui Joseph

Students and parents of Karima Boys High School in Othaya on Monday had something to smile about after they received compensation for their school bus by PACIS Insurance Company which disappeared under mysterious circumstances in September last year.

They were given KES 3 Million to purchase a new one.

The 51 seater bus had been donated by area MP president Kibaki and they had used it for only one month.

The driver of the bus claimed that he met some men who informed him that they had been given permission by the school administration to have the bus.

The school principal later refuted the assertions and said he had not let it to anyone.

To that effect, three men were arrested and arraigned in Othaya court facing charges of robbery with violence.

Appearing before Resident Magistrate Florence Macharia, the suspects Joseph Nduriri Gitahi, Joseph Warui Wairimu and Simon Kibe Githuku were charged that on September 6th  2012 at Kianganda village in Othaya, jointly with others not before court while armed with dangerous weapons (pistol) robbed Joel Ritho Murage of a motor vehicle, KES 3 000, one Nokia 1616 phone , identity card, one driving licence and one Equity Bank ATM card all valued at KES 3 505 750.

In addition, they were charged with using physical violence on the driver while committing the offence but they all denied the charges.

They were released on a bond of KES 0.2 Million each as the case continued.

After police investigations, the three suspects were arrested in Kiambu County.
