Women arraigned in court for fraud released on bond

Two Women of conspiracy to defraud were today arraigned in court. Lucy Wanjuhi Kamau and Ann Wagio Kamande pleaded not guilty to the charges before Milimani Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku.

The duo was said to have obtained Ksh. 500,000 from Alexander Gitonga Njue between September 21 and 26, 2020 here in Nairobi.

Lucy and Ann had promised the complaint that they offer a motor vehicle KCF 195E in exchange to serve as security a thing which turned out to be a lie.

Their defense counsel Mr. Bosire, pleaded with the court to release them on lenient bond terms. “Your honor, Lucy Kamau is unwell. She has high blood pressure and on the other hand, Ann Kamande is a single mother and the sole bread winner. I request that you listen to their case and release them on lenient bond terms,” said Bosire.

The accused were however released on Ksh. 300,000 bond each with an alternative cash bail of Ksh. 200,000.
