A Kenyan woman on Thursday told a Kibera court that she had been giving loans to a Nigerian national who is accused of defrauding her of Ksh.30 million.

Bella Bronislavia, appearing before Magistrate Derrick Kutto, said she was investing in Mr. Edwin Obi Okoye’s business when she gave her the amount in different instalments between December 12, 2017 and May 3, 2018.

She told the court that she began by depositing Ksh.5 million in Mr Obuye’s account on December 18, 2017.

“On January 2, 2018, he asked me to loan him another Ksh.8 million to his company. On 16 February I sent Sh5 million to the same account. February 24, 2018, I sent Sh6 million to the same account. March 26, 2018, I sent Sh1 million to the same account. On May 16, 2018 I sent Sh6 million to the same account and in total, I had transferred Sh31 million to the said account,” she told the court.

Bella further clarified she had no sexual relationship with Mr. Obuye, noting that they only engaged in business with the Nigerian national.

She also told the court that she received a loan repayment of Ksh.500,000 from Mr. Okoye.

The matter will be mentioned on June 11.
