Danson Mungatana, Paul Waweru released on a Ksh.200k cash bail
Former legislator Danson Mungatana and his co-accused were on Tuesday arraigned before the Kibra Law Courts for plea taking.
The two appeared before Judge Abdulkadir Lorot who is set to make a ruling in their forgery and obtaining money by false pretense on Wednesday.
The two were then released on a Ksh.200,000 cash bail and ordered to appear before the same court at 9.30am on Wednesday.
According to the Directorate of Crimimal Investigations, the two had applied to settle the matter outside of court, an application the prosecution opposed.
Mungatana and his co-accused Paul Waweru were arrested on August 11 for obtaining Ksh. 1000,000 from their victim who they had promised a Ksh.70million tender.
According to detectives, Mungatana purported to be working for a top security agency, and had promised the victim cereals and building tenders.
The victim was to pay an additional Ksh.1m but sensed the documents they had received were fake.
