Mombasa CBA chief summoned over Sh8 million missing from court account
The High Court in Mombasa has issued summons to the Commercial Bank of Africa branch manager to explain Sh8million that went missing from the Mombasa law courts Admiralty Marshall Account.
The money was part of Sh38 million meant to pay the wages of five crew members of the MV Ponmudi.
It went missing in 2012. The crew transporting communication equipment to Somalia in 2010 developed mechanical problems midway and it had to be towed back to Kenya.
The crew moved to court in 2011, demanding their wages for the three months they were at sea.
In 2012, High Court judge Mary Kasango ordered the ship be sold to pay the crew members. Sh8 million of the Sh38 million deposited to the Admiralty account went missing.
