An office manager at Total Halal Hussein Mukhtar Haji on Friday pleaded not guilty to stealing over Ksh. 10.5million.

He will stay in remand for at least seven days awaiting court ruling on bail.

He is accused of stealing Ksh. 10,553,328 jointly with others who were not before court.

The court was told that the theft occurred on diverse dates between November 27, 2019 and July 2 2020 at First Community Bank in Nairobi County.

The Prosecution opposed the release of the first accused on bond saying he faces severe charges.

According to an affidavit filed in court, the prosecution claimed that the accused has been collecting company money and keeping it in the office safe.

It was reported that he had been keeping the money since April this year when the company accounts were frozen and directors barred from withdrawing money from the account.

The investigating officer argued that the accused would interfere with evidence given that other two directors of the company linked to the offence are foreigners currently out of the country and could facilitate his flight.

The court will deliver the accused’s bail ruling after seven days.
