A Kenyan court on Tuesday, March 23 declared April 6, 2021, for further hearing of a case of a woman who was accused of stealing her lover’s mobile phones.
TrillerTunes understands that one Miss Nelius Wangui Maina was arraigned before the court for allegedly doing away with her man’s handsets after he reportedly refused to give her transport fare to get to a destination.
It was gathered that Maina was charged at Makadara law courts on Tuesday, March 23, with stealing two mobile phones belonging to Eric Basweti. The suspect while narrating her side of the story said she stole the phones to hold them for ransom after Basweti refused to give her transport fare.
Ms Maina told the court that she travelled from Nakuru to visit Basweti in Nairobi but that he refused to give her fare to return home after having a nice time with her. It was gathered that Ms Maina stole Basweti’s two phones worth Sh37,500 and Sh40,300 at his house in South B estate in Makadara sub-county on March 18.
The complainant was said to be in the bathroom when the Maina took his two mobile phones and later allegedly transferred Sh40,300 from his M-PESA to other mobile phone numbers. Ms Maina was arrested after a boda boda rider she had hired reported her to police and Basweti was contacted.
She admitted to the charges before chief magistrate Angelo Kithinji and was released on a cash bail of Sh50,000.
