A housegirl was yesterday charged with robbing her employer. Teresia Kitili Kathoka allegedly stole Sh 250,000 and two phones worth Sh 20, 000 from Aunali Gulamabas.
Kathoka was armed with a pistol when he committed the offence on December 3 at Light House Towers apartments. She denied the charges before senior principle magistrate Richard Odenyo.
Kitili denied the offence saying the watchman at the apartments opened the gate for the gangsters who later robbed them. Magistrate Odenyo told her that she was in court to give her side of the story.
The case will be heard on February 25. In the same court, two men who admitted stealing the Kenya Railways property worth Sh180,000 were remanded. Jeremiah Okulu and Moses Chikanda allegedly stole one slack adjuster, three vertical levers, two adjusting rods, break connecting pins, and 11 flat crashers.
The suspects are alleged to have sneaked into the Changamwe railway yard on December 6 where they made away with the loot. Prosecutor John Gichage applied for the two to be remanded at a police station to help the police recover the items.
The case will be mentioned on Monday to set the hearing date. In the same court, a salesman was charged with failing to issue an ETR receipt for a doormat worth Sh 300.
Abdul Gedi is alleged to have sold the doormat to undercover KRA officers at the Sayid shop on Nyerere Road in Nairobi.
The case will be heard on January 17.
