BY PRUDENCE WANZA – Two men have pleaded guilty to stealing tablets meant for the ongoing huduma namba registration.
The accused, Adams Mulati and Timothy Kiswii appeared before Chief Magistrate, Francis Andayi.
The two were charged separately. Adams Mulati, is alleged to have stolen two tablets make Idemia Morph valued at Ksh. 70,000 at government press offices while Timothy Kiswii is alleged to have stolen one tablet of the same make worth Sh. 35,000 meant for huduma namba registration.
They however claimed that their intention was not to steal the tablet and that the tablets they were found with were not able to install the software for the registration and therefore they used them as phones.
But just before the hearing of the facts of the case, the two accused persons changed their plea and pleaded guilty to the charges before the hearing of the facts of the case.
They will be released on a bond of Sh. 50,000 or an alternative cash bail of Sh. 30,000.
