A man has been charged with conspiracy to commit a felony namely stealing and did steal Sh 136 million from Gulf Bank Kenya Limited.

Victor Ondabu Oyunge is accused of committing the offence on or before 11th August 2016 at an unknown place within the republic of Kenya together with others not before court.

The accused who hails from Kisii County was also charged with a second count of stealing another 1.5 million from the same bank on the same dates.

Oyunge who was arrested yesterday was also charged with handling stolen goods.

The accused was charged that on January 9th 2016 at Gulf Bank in Nairobi County, otherwise than in the course of stealing dishonestly received Sh 1.5 million into his account knowing or having reason to believe it to be stolen.

The accused denied the charges before Nairobi Milimani law courts Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi.

The prosecution told the court that the matter is related to another before the court and therefore prayed that the matter is mentioned on similar dates as the other in order to make an application for consolidation.

The court also heard that the prosecution did not object the accused person to be released on bond, however, they did ask the court to consider the bond terms in the other matter.

However, the magistrate ruled that he could not set the bond terms similar to the other matter because the city court file had not been brought before him to consider adding that he was not the one who handled that matter.

The accused was released on a bond of Sh 5 million or a cash bail of Sh 3 million. The case will be heard on 8th and 9th September.
