Woman, 95, charged with stealing Sh900,000

Wachira denied the charge and was released on a Sh100,00 cash bail.

 

95-year-old Esther Nyambura Wachira has been charged with stealing Sh900,000 in accrued rent for 14 years in Kenya.

The prosecution told the court that she allegedly committed the crime between 2000 and 2014 in Nairobi's Shauri Moyo estate.

Her lawyer, Mr Wangalwa Oudo, told Chief Magistrate Daniel Ogembo that the grandmother suffers from arthritis, diabetes and hypertension.

The magistrate said her children should clear the cash bail on her behalf as well as ensure that she is in court whenever she is needed.

Nyambura Wachira's case is to be allocated one day for hearing.
