Ms Moraa during court hearing.

There was drama in court after a non-executive director of a construction company accused of fraud, started crying uncontrollably maintain she was innocent and that her brother was the main suspect.

While defending herself at Milimani Court, Ms Gladys Moraa of Malch Construction Company Limited told the court that she has suffered economically and emotionally for the last 10 years for the offence she never committed or benefitted from.

Ms Moraa, along with other suspects, were accused of fraudulently receiving Sh96 million from Fina Bank Limited (FBL) — now Guaranty Trust Bank Kenya. She disclosed before the court that the plan was hatched by her brother, Mr Don Bosco Gichana, and a former Fina Bank Limited manager.

She added that she knew about the fraud when a taxi driver called her that her name was all over the media for being taking part in the fraud. A purchase of one of the dailies in November 2010 confirmed her fears.

She maintained that her work at the construction company was tied to signing cheques and not how the money was being channelled.

The court further heard that part of the money had already been returned and that Sh15 million was the remaining balance. The accused asked the court to enter a plea bargain to be allowed to repay the amount. The hearing will resume on October 29.
