Man who stole from employer disappears from court

28 August 2013, 13:01 Wangui Joseph

A Nyeri court on Tuesday issued a warrant of arrest to a man accused of stealing from his employer.

David Muriuki Mugo had attended the hearing of his case but disappeared few minutes before the court clerk read out his file, according to the prosecutor Chief Inspector Peter Wahome.

He told Acting Senior Principal Magistrate, Christine Wekesa that he had spotted the accused person in the court room awaiting for the case to proceed.

The prosecutor suspected that the accused disappeared after he saw his former employer and one of the witnesses who was expected to give evidence in regards to the matter.

Muriuki is faced with charges of stealing by an agent contrary to section 283 (c) of the penal code. He is charged that on diverse dates between August 8 and 11, 2012 along Nairobi-Nanyuki road, being the agent of Joseph Wainaina Njoroge he stole 1,120 bags of rice valued at KES 1.8 million.

He is also charged with conspiracy to defraud contrary to section 317 of the penal code. It is alleged that at the same period in Nairobi jointly with others not before court they conspired to defraud Joseph Wainaina 1,120 bags of rice valued at KES.1.8million which was on transit from Mombasa to Narumoru, Nyeri County.

The prosecutor exuded confidence and assured court that the accused who is out on a cash bail will be rearrested and arraigned in court.
