A serial City fraudster conning people in the name of DP Gachagua has been charged afresh at Milimani Law Courts with stealing laptops and mobile phones.

George Moraa Bosire is accused of stealing the above items on October 4, 2022 in Nairobi, from different city residents.

The accused was charged with three counts of stealing.

On one count, he was accused of stealing a Lenovo laptop and a Xiaomi mobile phone from Veronica Kerubo Mokua, both worth Sh85,000.

In the second count, he was accused of jointly stealing with another person, who was not before the court, a HP ProBook laptop, two Tecno Camon phones all worth Sh74,000 plus Sh2,000 cash from Florence Wairimu Wambui.

An additional count he was accused of was jointly stealing with another person, who was not before the court, from Everlyne Wairimu Githu. They stole an HP Elitebook and a Tecno mobile phone all worth Sh42,000

Bosire appeared before Chief Magistrate Wendy Micheni and denied all the charges.

The accused went ahead and pleaded to the court to consolidate his previous charges with the current ones and be granted bond.

The prosecution, however, objected to the bond and asked that the accused be detained at the KICC Police Station.

“We cannot release the accused person on bond as there are additional complainants in this matter and we need to give all of them time to identify him (Bosire),” the prosecution added.

The prosecutor insisted that the accused is a notorious fraudster who deserves to remain behind bars.

Furthermore, the prosecution requested that the court object to the accused person’s plea because all of the offenses were reported to different police stations, occurred on different dates, and were reported by different complainants.

“Therefore, the cases are not the same,” the prosecution concluded.

In the previous case, Bosire was accused of defrauding unsuspecting individuals by using the name of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

He was also accused of stealing job-seeker’s certificates which he would later sell after altering them.

Bosire would lure unsuspecting city residents to Gachagua’s office on Harambee Avenue and direct them to wait outside the building while he looked for opportunities for them.

The accused will be remanded at KICC Police Station for the Investigating Officer to file an affidavit to help the court to make a decision on the bond terms.

The case will be mentioned on November, 15, 2022 for a pre-trial.
