Kenya: Total Clerk Charged With Theft

A Total Kenya clerk was yesterday charged with theft of oil products worth Sh10 million. Quincy Chaka is accused of conspiring with two other employees to steal 80 drums and 896 cartons of assorted oil engine lubricants valued at Sh10,597,389 from the Mitchell Cotts godown at Kibarani in Mombasa.

He faced a second count of stealing by servant. Chaka was released on a Sh50,000 by Mombasa senior resident magistrate Elvis Michieka.

His arrest brings to three the number of suspects charged with the theft of the products that were in a container destined to Kigali, Rwanda.

Paul Ndiritu and Peter Njoroge last Monday denied stealing the goods. State prosecutor Alex Waithaka successfully sought an application to have the two remanded at the port police station to assist in investigations. The case will be mentioned on February 11.
