TWO CONGOLESE CHARGED
Two Congolese nationals yesterday were charged in a Kibera court for allegedly duping an American company by pretending they were in a position to supply gold.
Andre Tshikunga and Roger Kishala appeared before principal magistrate Bernard Ochoi. They denied three counts of obtaining money by false pretenses.
They are accused of obtaining 200,427USD (approximately Sh20 million) by pretending they could sell 150kg of gold to Trans African Exchange in the USA between September 27 and October 5 at Lavington Supreme Centre, Nairobi.
They asked the court to grant them reasonable bond terms.
The two told the court they have reputable Kenyan contacts, who are ready and willing to be their sureties. They also promised to deposit their travel documents in court.
State counsel Jackline Omol asked the court to remand the two men for two more days as investigations are still going on. The case will be mentioned on Friday.
