Two Widows Charged For Obtaining Sh283,368 By False Pretence From Businesswoman

Two widows were on Friday afternoon charged before a Milimani court with obtaining more than Sh280,000 by false pretence from businesswoman.

Mariana Wanjiru Tsotse and Pauline Wangui Ikua, were blamed for defrauding Margaret Wanjiru Ichanga a substantial amount of Sh283,368. 

The court heard that the duo extorted Kshs283,368 arguing that they are able to process Ichanga's customers, Robert Mwaka Musyoka, John Maina Waweru, Harrison Mwaura Njenga, Caro Njeri, and Benson Chege to work in Qatar, with full knowledge knowing that they are not capable of doing that.

The charge sheet showed that the two suspects obtained the sum between July 22, 2021 and August 16, 2021 in Nairobi.

The duo, who showed up before Senior Principal Magistrate R K Ondiek, asked the court to consider reasonable bond terms.

"Your honour I don't have a husband. I stay in Umoja Estate where I deal in vegetables. I take care of 17-year-old boy. I ask you to set me free on reasonable bond terms," said the first suspect, Tsotse.

The prosecution never opposed the suspect's plea for bond and they were each freed on a bond of Sh200,000 or a similar cash bail of Sh50, 000.

Their case was schedule for mentioned on December 16.
