BY SAM ALFAN.
Two men who cunningly altered a succession document in order to deny their other siblings their rightful share of the properties left behind by their kin have been charged in court.
Joseph Mwangi and Samson Irungu, both brothers, jointly with others not in court, with intent to defraud, made a false a document namely a certificate of grant for succession in the matter of estate of Melab Wangechi.
They purported it to be a genuine document issued by Justice D.K Maraga a judge of the high court of Kenya.
The brothers allegedly committed the offence on October 13, 2014 at unknown place within the country.
They made the document appear genuine communicating the same to their kindred who questioned its legality and after a careful scrutiny they found that the certificate was a mere forgery.
The court heard that on November 24, last year at custody and registrars limited company along Standard Street, they knowingly and fraudulently altered a certificate of confirmation of grant dated on October 13, 2014.
They denied the charges before senior principal magistrate Joyce Gandani and pleaded with the court for lenient court terms.
The magistrate released them on a cash bail of Sh100, 000 each or a bond of Sh300, 000. The case will be heard on June 6.
