Two businessmen in Kisumu County are set to be arraigned for allegedly conspiring to defraud a company of Ksh.79 million through forged court documents.

Sunil Shah and Kamal Shah, who are directors of United Millers, are accused of presenting fake documents in court in support of their case against Kotecha & Sons Limited.

United Millers had gone to court seeking refund of their funds together with special damages amounting to Ksh.79,471,000 claiming to have lost business to their clients as a result of failure to supply sugar.

They were arrested by DCI detectives and were each released on Ksh.70,000 cash bail pending their arraignment.

They were expected to appear in court on Thursday but this did not happen with the court being told that the DPP’s office had decided to review the file “after receiving addictional information.”

According to court documents seen by Citizen Digital, the two alongside three others are accused of forging several local purchasing orders to support their case filed at the Kisumu High Court.

They are facing seven counts among them conspiracy to defeat course of justice, forgery and uttering a false document.
