Fake lawyer cons Bishop out of KES 82K

29 July 2016, 12:26 Joseph Njung'eh

Nanyuki - A man who impersonated an advocate of the Kenya High Court has been arraigned in a Nanyuki court for conning a bishop.

Caleb Mutambi appeared before Resident Magistrate Evanson Ngigi for conning Bishop Moses Riungu M’arim out of KES 82,000 on diverse dates between 2006 and April 16 this year in Kieni East, Nyeri County.

Mutambi also faced another count of presenting himself to the Bishop as advocate Oraro of the High Court.

According to the prosecution, Bishop Riungu had known the accused as an advocate of the high court for a long time and had sought his assistance in securing a lease certificate from an allotment letter dated May 29, 1992.

Bishop Riungu gave out the said amount of money and since then, the accused never offered the service even after several attempts by the bishop to pursue the matter, the court heard.

He reported the matter after he heard the accused had been arrested for impersonating an advocate.

However, the accused denied the allegations and was released on a bond of KES 100, 000.

The matter will be heard on October 13 this year.
