Man denies defrauding Kitui-Mwingi Investors Cluster Sh 52M


A man has been charged with obtaining Sh 52.3 million from Kitui-Mwingi Investors Cluster by false pretenses.

Joshua Memusi Meisi is charged alongside 11 other men with obtaining the said money by falsely pretending that they were selling shares each valued at one acre piece of land for Dupoto Darfur Welfare Society, a fact they knew to be false.

The 12 are alleged to have committed the offense on diverse dates between 13th October 2020 and 4th May 2022 in Nairobi County, jointly with others not before court, with intent to defraud.

The accused persons are also charged with conspiring to defraud the Kitui-Mwingi Investors Cluster the said money.

Meisi denied the charges before Senior Principal Magistrate Bernard Ochoi.

However, his 11 co-accused persons did not appear in court to answer to the charges prompting the court to issue summons against them.

They include Likam Ole Kiambu, David Ntete, David Ole Nkaratoi, John Kiyian Karu, Soi Rapei Sanigo, Odinga Letole, Daniel Naikuni, James Ole Karu, Epancha Santamu Nesenke, Salaash Ole Parmuat and Lodiaka Leramario.

Meisi was granted a bond of Sh 5 million with alternative cash bail of Sh 3 million and one contact person.

The other suspects are expected in court on 22nd February to plead to the charges.
