Police, military officer in court over KES 1M insurance fraud

07 May 2014, 10:24 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - A senior traffic woman officer attached to the Narumoru police station has been arraigned in a Nyeri court facing charges of obtaining money by false pretense and making a false entry in a police Occurrence Book.

Petronila Achieng’ is facing charges of fraudulently obtaining KES 1 092 500 from CIC Insurance Company Ltd alongside John Ondieki Okeri, who is a military officer in Nanyuki.

It is alleged that the two made a false claim for a motor vehicle on March 30, 2012 claiming it had been involved in an accident.

The two were jointly charged that on or about March 16, 2011 at an unknown place within the republic, they conspired to defraud CIC Insurance Company of the above mentioned cash.

They alleged that a motor vehicle registration number KBN 681G, a Toyota Premio, was involved in an accident on March 16, 2011 along the Nanyuki-Narumoru road.

On the second count, Ondieki is accused of obtaining KES 1 092 500 at the CIC Insurance head offices in Nairobi on July 22, 2011 as the claim for the said motor vehicle, while Achieng’ is accused of falsely making an entry in the Occurrence Book claiming that the said vehicle was involved in a road accident on March 16, 2011.

However, the two through their lawyers Wahome Gikonyo and Kimani Njuguna denied the charges before Nyeri chief magistrate Wilbrodah Juma.

The CIC Insurance Company assistant legal and Sales manger, Lydia Mwangi who appeared as a witness in the case told the court that Ondieki had insured the said vehicle with another insurance company.

The matter will continue on May 27, 2014 with prosecution ready to adduce five more witnesses.
