Another suspect charged with demanding Sh 300M from Safaricom


A man has been charged with demanding millions of money with menace from Safaricom limited.

Benedict Kabugi Ndung’u is accused of demanding Sh 300 hundred million from the public limited company with intent to steal.

The accused is alleged to have committed the offence between 1st May and 7th June 2019 at an unknown place within Nairobi, jointly with others already before court.

He denied the charges before Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi.

Ndung’u is charged barely three days after two Safaricom employees were charged with the same offence and electronic fraud.

The two are accused of transferring Safaricom subscriber’s data to an unauthorized person.
