Syresins Limited sues three former employees for allegedly stealing 31M

Syresins Limited has sued three of its former employees with stealing over 31 million shillings from it.
Fredrick Otieno Oudia, Samuel Matasi and Catherine Gachanja were charged in a Nairobi court with stealing from their employer Sh 31,740957.
The three were employed as accountant, head of sales and sales co-coordinator respectively before they were laid off last year.
They were further charged with conspiracy to steal the above amount between 1st November 2012 and 30th April 2017 property of the said company in Industrial Area, Nairobi.
Oudia faced a lone charge of forging 35 Commercial Bank of Africa deposit slips purporting to be deposits for Sh7,320,000 to Syresins Limited.
The three appeared before Senor Resident Magistrate Helena Onkwani and denied the charges.
Through their lawyer Kennedy Wanyanga, the accused persons asked the court to grant them lenient bond terms on grounds that they were innocent.
“My clients were sacked last year by the company and when they filed a compensation claim, the company management pressed claims that they had stolen the money”, the lawyer said.
They were released on a bond of Sh 2 million.
The case will be mentioned on June 4.
