A businessman has been charged with conspiracy to defraud a trader of over Sh9 million.
Oscar Juma appeared before Milimani Chief Magistrate Wendy Mocheni Kagendo and denied the charges.
The court heard that Juma committed the offence on diverse days between January 10, 2020 and July 8, this year within Nairobi County.
It is alleged that jointly with others not in court, they conspired to defraud Flemister Leilan Sh9, 091,693,45 by falsely pretending that he would use the money in running and operating a joint venture business.
