Man Taken to Court For Allegedly Stealing an Expensive Laptop From IEBC

A man was taken to court on Friday, August 19, 2022 for stealing a laptop belonging to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission. According to reports from the court, the man who was been identified as Musa Ogendo Sirangi is accused of being in possession of the HP laptop ProBook 430GB worth Ksh.226,240.

The suspected thief is an employee of DMS Limited. He reportedly committed the offence on Wednesday this week, one week after the elections. Interestingly, Mr Sirangi while appearing before Senior Principal Magistrate Robinson Ondieki could not plead to the criminal charges alleging that he had been assaulted by police officers during his arrest.

For that reason, the court directed that the suspect should be taken to the hospital as soon as possible to receive medical attention. He is required to be produced to court on Monday to take his plea concerning the allegations. It remains unclear under what circumstances did the man managed to escape with the laptop in the presence of security officials. The prosecution is also expected to submit evidence on the said matter.
