Incidents of Kenyans obtaining money by false pretenses have been on the rise in the recent past with the government urging Kenyans to abstain from this vice.
Many people have been arrested and prosecuted by the authorities for the crimes that they have committed while more are still in court.
This evening, according to the available reliable reports that we have with us from Director of Public Prosecutions, a kisumu woman is said to have falsely obtained over 14 million shillings from a British company.
The DPP has revealed that the woman, Gladys Adhiambo Omondi, obtained the money by pretending to be in a position to supply electrical materials.
The middle-aged woman is said to have today appeared before the Kisumu Resident Magistrate charged with falsely obtaining a sum of 14.4 million shillings.
The accused, Gladys Adhiambo Omondi, is said to have pleaded not guilty to the two charges of conspiracy to defraud Ms. Petrolinah Achieng of 8,900,000 Kenya shillings.
She falsely presented tender documents that belonged to the British Electrical Services as a genuine tender for the supply of cable lines as well as willfully obtaining registration of a motor vehicle that is valued at 5 million shillings which is the property of Sacho Motors Limited.
She was released on a bond of 1.7 million Kenya shillings or a cash bail of 700,000 shillings for the first charge as well as a bond of 1.3 million shillings or a cash bail of 500,000 shillings for the second charge.
Let us know your thoughts and opinions on this latest development from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions office in Kisumu.
