Man charged after allegedly pretending to be a CBK employee to get Canadian Visa


A man has been charged with impersonating persons employed by the Central Bank of Kenya.

Leonard Njigua Kiboi is also accused of making a document without authority.

The court heard that on diverse dates between 1st and 26th April 2019, with intent to deceive and without lawful authority or excuse, Kiboi made a letter dated 26th April 2019 purporting it to be a letter issued by CBK.

The accused is charged with representing himself as a person employed by the CBK and authorized to represent the same bank at an International Congress in Toronto, Canada.

Kiboi denied the charges before Senior Principal Magistrate Kenneth Cheruiyot.

The accused requested the court to grant him lenient cash bail saying that the agency that was processing the documents for him has milked him of all his cash.

The prosecution intends to consolidate the case with another already before court.

The court granted Kiboi a cash bail of Sh 20,000. The case will be heard on 19th August.
