Husband Sues Wife Allegedly For Stealing From Family Business
A Kenyan woman, Rosalyn Wangui Wambugu, has been arraigned in court on charges of stealing and forgery in a complaint filed by her business partner, who is also her husband.
Mrs Wambugu allegedly forged an account opening application form of their company account at the National Bank of Kenya, Harambee Avenue branch in Nairobi on March 29, 2018, purporting it to have been signed by her husband, Johnson Ndung’u Njau, reports CitizenTV Kenya.
She is also charged with stealing Ksh 1 million ($9,930) on April 16, 2018 from their company by virtue of her employment as a co-director of the said company.
The accused, who was before Nairobi Milimani Court Senior Principal Magistrate, Martha Mutuku, however, denied the charges.
The accused also asked the court to release her on affordable bail, saying that she currently has no place to live.
“Your honour, the complainant is my husband who has been assaulting me and at the moment, has kicked me out of our matrimonial home.
“I’m therefore asking for lenient bond and bail terms which I can raise,” pleaded Wangui.
The magistrate released her on a bond of Ksh200,000 ($1,984), with an alternative cash bail of Ksh100,000 ($992).
