A Central Bank of Kenya official has been charged with stealing Sh1 million from his employer.

Odinga is alleged to have committed the offense on 12th September 2017 jointly with others not before court.

The case will be heard on October 6 2017.

The accused is also a businessman and is alleged to own a fleet of cross border public transport vehicles.

Another CBK official is expected to be arraigned in court on Monday to face similar charges.

Stanley Musonye was produced before court on Friday under a miscellaneous application where he was detained for one day to allow completion of investigations.
