City lawyer Daniel Kirera Bosire and businessman John Martin Chege Kamau have been charged with defrauding a top Pakistani government official of Sh11.5 million in a fake water project.
Bosire and the businessman appeared before Milimani Chief Magistrate Lukas Onyina and denied defrauding Iftekhar Ahmad Aziz, a government executive in Pakistan.
The duo are accused of conspiring to obtain Sh11,030,000 from Aziz claiming that they would supply drilling pipes and scrap metals, soon after remitting the amount.
The charge sheet stated that they committed the offence on the diverse dates between January 26 and April 12, 2022 in Nairobi, jointly with others not before court.
The charges further stated that the duo knew that they were not in a position to supply the items.
The court directed them to deposit bond of Sh1 million each or alternative cash bail of Sh100,000 each.
