Nairobi — The Attorney General has terminated a Sh4 million theft case against two advocates.
Ms Emily Wakesho Wegulo and Rispa Kerubo, had been charged with stealing the money from the Teleposta Pension Scheme. "I have been instructed to enter a nolle prosequi in this case. The AG does not wish to proceed with it," Chief Inspector David Wangai told resident magistrate Peter Ndwiga. Ms Wegulo and Ms Kerubo did not oppose the plea.
The magistrate discharged the pair, saying the AG acted within his mandate. The two were charged with stealing a bankers cheque of Sh2,565,000 drawn to Edward Ndirangu Njakai by the Teleposta Pension Scheme on August 26,2010.
They allegedly stole the money from the Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) Kipande House Branch on Kenyatta Avenue on September 9, 2010. They were also accused of stealing Sh1,440,000 from KCB Hurligham Branch. The pair was first charged on July 14. On Wednesday, they rejoiced as they left the court, saying: "We are innocent. We were just framed. We did not steal any money."
