Man caught faking signature to acquire loan

24 May 2012, 16:34 Kelvin Wanjohi

A security guard who used a fake identity card to access a loan from a cooperative saving and credit account has been released by a Nyahururu court on a bond of KES 100, 000  

John Mbuthia who appeared before Senior Principal Magistrate in Nyahururu William Chepseba, denied the charge that on 17 April at Suera Co-operative Saving and Credit Society Limited  in Nyandarua County presented a fake Identity Card in a bid to acquire a KES 25, 000 loan.

The court heard through the prosecution that the accused approached the complainant, Simon Mwangi, and requested him to be his guarantor for a loan and presented to him forged documents, a thing that Simon obliged.

It later dawned on the officials at the credit facility during the processing of the loan that the ID of the complainant was fake and upon contacting the complainant he said he had not authorised the accused to use his signature or the ID card.

They reported the matter to Nyahururu Police who immediately arrested the accused and charged him.

The case is set to continue on July 4.
