A British citizen has been charged with fraudulently obtaining goods worth Sh6 million.

Rohyn Majethia appeared before Milimani Chief Magistrate Wendy Kagendo and denied the charges.

The court heard that Majethia obtained the money from Peter Gichobi Muchiri on May 10, 2022, at Allsops area along Thika Super Highway, with intent to defraud. He allegedly committed the offence jointly with others not before court.

The prosecution told the court that he obtained the goods by falsely pretending that he had authority from Equity Bank’s Gigiri Supreme Centre branch to collect the shipment. The shipment comprised original bills of lading.

He is also accused that on May 31, at Kilindini within Mombasa City county, he fraudulently obtained goods worth Sh 6,226,966 (USD 53,221.93, from Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A (MSC) containing Acrylic High Bulk Dyed Spinning Yarns for knitting.

The court ordered him to deposit cash bail of Sh250,000 to secure his release.
