Man steals from commissioner

08 April 2013, 18:06 Wangui Joseph

A Nyeri prosecutor Rhodah Kanyi on Monday told court that a man who was recently set free from King’ng’o GK prison is back in dock facing theft charges.

Daniel Mutua Mwasia is charged that on February 2 he was arrested inside Nyeri Central Sub County Commissioner Hellen Chepkwony’s residence in Ring Road attempting to steal.

The prosecutor said Mutua was arrested by an Administration Police who was manning the compound.

The accused gained entry into the compound through the fence and subsequently a bathroom window.

He had completed his two-year jail term on January 21st 2013, which he was serving after being found guilty of stealing.

The case Investigating Officer-IO Joshua Moseti said the accused happened to know the residence when he was a convict since he could be taken there to clean the compound in the company of other convicts.

“When a convict is almost completing the term, he is often taken to work outside the prison facilities,” said the IO.

The court further heard that the accused while in prison changed his religion converting from Christian to Muslim.

Appearing before Resident Magistrate John Aringo, Mutua denied the statements arguing that he hailed from Matuu and could not travel all those kilometers just to steal in Nyeri.

However, he said after arrest, police at the station took more than 20 minutes arguing on which count he should be charged with.

Mutua also claimed that police undressed him at the station and was robbed him of KES 260.

His case was slated to proceed on April 15.
