Nanny fined KES 200K for stealing from employer

21 November 2013, 14:36 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - A house help has been fined KES 200,000 by a Nyeri court in default serve three years in jail for stealing from her employer.

Evelyn Nekesa appeared before Resident Magistrate Catherine Mburu where she admitted to the stealing charges.

She was accused that on November 14 this year at Ring Road estate in Nyeri town, the convict stole slippers, shoes, two mobile phones, suitcase and a camera all worth KES 48,800 belonging to Margret Wanjiru.

The court heard that the complainant was called from her working place by her son at around 5pm on the fateful day informing her that the house help had gone missing.

Wanjiru rushed home to find the said items missing, when she reported the matter to Nyeri police station.

Nekesa was later arrested at her home in Nzoia sub-County and escorted her to Nzoia police station, Western Kenya, before transferring her to Nyeri police station to answer to the charges.

The prosecution, led by Inspector Peter Wahome, told the court that upon arrest, the convict was found in possession of the stolen items and were produced in the court as exhibit.

In mitigation, the convict prayed for forgiveness claiming that she resorted to stealing in order to get money to travel back home after she received news that her child was sick.
