How a Nairobi man was drugged, and robbed after taking two women to his house
A woman who stole a laptop, and mobile phone from a man after allegedly spiking his drink inside his house was charged with theft contrary to section 268 (1) as read with section 275 of the penal code.
Ms Jackline Moraa was charged with stealing an Apple MacBook Pro laptop worth Sh160, 000, and a mobile phone worth Sh23, 000 from Michael Otieno Odhiambo at Donholm estate in Kamukunji sub-county within Nairobi on November 3, 2022.
Ms Moraa was also charged with stealing Sh121, 475 from Mr Odhiambo’s Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) account.
The accused person is also charged with conspiracy contrary to section 393 of the penal code after allegedly colluding with her accomplice to steal the items and the cash from Mr Odhiambo.
Her accomplice Ms Beatrice Adhiambo has been charged with similar offences.
Mr Odhiambo had picked up the two ladies on his way home from a social joint in Umoja and they were taken to his house by a bodaboda rider at around 2 am.
On arrival, the two ladies requested beer which he requested a rider to buy and deliver to his house.
While taking the beer, he noticed the two women were communicating secretly and ordered them to leave. After they left, Mr Odhiambo lost consciousness until the afternoon.
After waking up, he discovered that his laptop and phone were missing. He went to the nearby ATM to withdraw cash but was unable to carry out a transaction.
He proceeded to the KCB Jogoo Road branch where he was informed that his account had been suspended owing to suspicious transactions.
Mr Odhiambo also discovered that Sh121, 000 had been withdrawn through mobile banking and reported the matter to the police.
