Officers charged with theft of clothes
Two police officers attached to Nakuru Central Police Station were on Wednesday charged with stealing assorted clothes from a Baringo Member of County Assembly (MCA).
Appearing before Principal Magistrate Liz Gicheha, the duo denied the charges and were released on a bond of Ksh 80,000 each with a surety of a similar amount or a cash bail option of Ksh 30,000 pending the hearing of the matter on September 24th, 2015.
The two officers identified as Kawa Lumungati and Hassan Chesebe are alleged to have stolen clothes worth Ksh 20,000 after they confiscated them from a suspect who was handed to them by members of the public on August 7th, 2015.
This comes barely a week after three officers from Nakuru Police Station were arraigned in a Kericho court and charged with abduction and extortion
The officers, Charles Shikami, Steve Mwongera and Francis Gitau were released on a cash bail of Ksh 100,000 each.
