Dagoretti man charged with stealing 120 chickens; released on KSh100K bond

A man from Dagoretti, Nairobi County, was on Wednesday arraigned on charges of intending to defraud.

According to court documents, Godfrey Wachira obtained 120 chickens worth KSh75,000 from Mary Njeri (the complainant) but did not pay as part of the deal.

“Godfrey Wachira Mwangi: On the 6th October 2019, in Dagoreti Corner in Satelite area within Nairobi County, with intent to defraud, obtained from Mary Njeri Ragoi some of 75000 ksh by false pretending that he will pay for the 120 hens he had taken from Mary Njeri Ragoi,” the charge sheet read in part.

Wachira was reportedly well known to Njeri who runs a poultry farm in Dagoretti Corner area.

The Kibera Law Court was told on the fateful day around 10 am, Wachira convinced the complainant to give him 120 chickens. He failed to fulfil his end of the deal, giving a series of false promises prompting him to report the matter to police,

Senior Resident magistrate Charles Mwaniki granted the accused a bond of KSh100,000.

The case will be mentioned on November 2.
