In Summary

  • Joyce Britney and Florence Wangare were charged that - on January 17, 2019 - they administered a stupefying chemical substance on Fredrick Omondi Okati with an intent to steal from him.
  • The court heard that they also unlawfully transferred Ksh.1,940,000 from Mr. Omondi's account to several accounts held at Equity Bank, Family Bank and M-Pesa.
  • In the third count, the two were further charged jointly with others not before court with conspiracy to stupefy in order to steal.

Two women were on Wednesday arraigned at the Milimani Law Courts for allegedly spiking a man’s drink in Lang’ata, Nairobi and robbing him of Ksh.1.9 million.

Appearing before Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi, Joyce Britney and Florence Wangare were charged that on January 17, 2019 they administered a stupefying chemical substance known as Rohypnol on Fredrick Omondi Okati at Ngei 11 Estate in Langata with an intent to steal from him.

The court heard that they also unlawfully transferred Ksh.1,940,000 from Mr. Okati’s Stanbic Bank account into several accounts held at Equity Bank, Family Bank and M-Pesa accounts.

The two were further charged, jointly with others not before court, with conspiracy to stupefy in order to steal.

Britney, who was busted with a pack containing 7 one-miligram tablets of Rohypnol, was also said to have stolen Mr. Omondi’s mobile phone and ATM card all valued at Ksh.23,000.

She, hence, faced several other counts of electronic fraud, stealing and handling stolen properties against the law.

Britney was released on a bond of Ksh.1 million with alternative cash bail of Ksh.300,000 while Florence was released on a bond of Ksh.500,000 with alternative cash bail of Ksh.200,000.
