Mom­basa CBA chief sum­moned over Sh8 mil­lion miss­ing from court ac­count

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

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.
