Today another lawyer has been arraigned in court. He is the third lawyer to be charged this week.

Lawyer Billy Amugune Shigoli who has been described by the charge sheet as agent of Caroline Ann Cheledi is accused of stealing Sh 4, 027, 500, which he had received for or on account of Cheledi.

Prosecution alleged he committed the offense on diverse dates between 15th January and 7 March 2017 at Embassy House along Harambee Avenue in Nairobi.

However, he did not plead to the charges after his lawyer pleaded with the magistrate that his client was not physically fit to plead to the charges since he was diabetic and had not had access to his medication.

Senior Principal Magistrate Kenneth Cheruiyot considered the submissions and differed the plea to 2nd August 2018.

Senior Principal Magistrate Cheruiyot released him on a personal bond of Sh 300,000 pending plea taking.27,2018.
