Kayole woman charged with stealing TV, mobile phone from client who refused to pay for ‘good time’

A woman who allegedly carted away a television, a wristwatch watch, and a mobile phone all valued at Sh59, 100 from a man who declined to pay for sex services is facing theft charges at the Makadara Law Courts.

EWM,38, was charged with stealing from a dwelling house contrary to section 268 (1) as read with section 279 (b) of the Penal Code.

She is accused of stealing the items from JKM at his house in Masimba area within Kayole in Nairobi on the night of 24/25 October 2023.

EWM is also accused of stealing Sh3,880 which she allegedly withdrew from the complainant’s M-Pesa account after stealing the mobile phone.

JKM was having drinks at a club in the area when EWN walked in and he invited her to his table where they took drinks together.

They later left the club and went to his house but she requested for more beer and they went to a different bar where they bought more alcohol and returned to the house.

The woman told the police that while drinking, JKM asked to have sex with her and they allegedly agreed he would pay Sh5000 for sleeping with her before they proceeded to bed.

She claimed that JKM declined to pay after the intercourse and before they slept.

EWM told the police during investigations into the matter that JKM only gave her Mpesa pin and she confirmed he had less than the amount they had agreed.

They slept until around 7am when she woke up, allegedly wrapped up the TV, and took the other items before leaving the house. The suspect told the cops that she sold the TV to an electronics dealer.

She was arrested after she was spotted at the same bar where JKM met her and police arrested her.

EWM denied the charges before Makadara Chief Magistrate Tito Gesora.

She was released on a bond of Sh40,000 and an alternative cash bail of Sh30,000.

The case will be mentioned on February 9, 2024, before the hearing starts on June 24, 2024.
