A bishop has pleaded not guilty to stealing a motor vehicle belonging to Mandera Member of parliament Adan Mohamed Nooru.

James Karimi Karubiu is alleged to have committed the offense on August 29, 2010 in Nairobi’s CBD.

The prosecution said the bishop stole a green Range Rover Green valued at Sh1.8 million shillings. His prosecution had dragged for years because the complainant had thought he will pay.

The accused faces two other criminal counts of issuing a bad cheque to the said lawmaker with knowledge that the account had insufficient funds.

Karubiu appeared before Nairobi chief magistrate Daniel Ogemba today, October 14, 2016, and was released on a Sh100, 000 cash bail.

An agreement had been entered in the year 2010 between Mr Mohammed and the clergyman for the sale of Green Range Rover KAP 239D.

The MP made a complaint to the flying squad Nairobi Unit on August 11, this year, whereby the suspect was summoned by the investigating officer but he refused to appear.

Investigating officers started investigating the said bank account belonging to Mr Karimi and found it had insufficient funds at the time he was issuing the cheques.

The accused is facing another criminal case according to courts record.
