A petrol station agent has been charged with stealing more than Sh7.7 million in Us dollars.

Humphrey Mulindi Mathahana appeared before Milimani Chief Magistrate Lukas Onyina and denied the charge.

It is alleged that Mulindi committed the offence on diverse dates between February 6 and 11, last year at Ola petrol station in Westlands, Nairobi.

The charge sheet stated that he stole the money from businessman Issadine Gabane Mohammed.

But according to Mulindi’s lawyer, the accused person only received USD 35,000 which he offered to refund but Issadine refused to take the money.

The lawyer further claimed that his client was arrested by a battalion of police officers at his home in Muthaiga.

The court also heard that Mulindi’s car has been in possession of the complainant since February of 2022 to date.

He was released on a cash bail of Sh 1million pending the hearing of the case.

Mention date is on 27th of March 2023.

The businessman has filed another case before the commercial court in a bid to recover the said money.
