Sh 2.5M Eggs fraud case may fail to proceed

by Robert Guyana
A case in which city businessman Ronald Reagan Ouma is alleged to have defrauded  eggs worth Sh2.5 million from a private company may fail to proceed.
This is after the court  learnt that the cash bail of Sh100,000 that he paid after his arrest cannot be traced.
The court heard that after the accused person was arrested  he was taken at the Capitol Hill police station where he was released on a police cash bail of Sh100, 000 which is yet to be accounted for even as the case head to collapse.
“It is hereby ordered the police be given one last chance to avail the accused person’s police cash bail by February 8,2024.
“If the same will not have been availed, the prosecution will be expected to withdraw the matter to enable it to put its house in order,” ruled Kibera Chief Magistrate Ann Mwangi.
According to the court papers, Ouma who was present in court when the matter was mentioned allegedly defrauded Hall Mark Retail and Management Limited eggs worth Sh2, 521,000 by pretending that he was in a position to pay for them after delivery a fact he knew was false.
The prosecution has so far enlisted for witness including the detectives from Capitol Hill Police station if the matter will proceed for plea once the missing cash bail is availed next month.
The magistrate said once charged in court, the accused person will either plead guilty to the charges or not guilty and the complainant may not get justice once the accused person fails to be charged in court.
