Two women were on Wednesday arraigned at the Milimani Law Courts for allegedly spiking a man’s drink in Lang’ata, Nairobi and robbing him of Ksh1.9 million.
Appearing before Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi, Joyce Britney and Florence Wangare were charged that on January 17, 2019 they administered a stupefying chemical substance known as Rohypnol on Fredrick Omondi Okati at Ngei 11 Estate in Langata with an intent to steal from him.
The court heard that they also unlawfully transferred Ksh1, 940, 000 from Mr Okati’s Stanbic Bank account into several accounts held at Equity Bank, Family Bank and M-Pesa accounts.
The two were further charged, jointly with others not before court, with conspiracy to stupefy in order to steal.
Britney, who was busted with a pack containing 7 one-milligram tablets of Rohypnol, was also said to have stolen Mr Omondi’s mobile phone valued at Ksh23, 000 and an ATM card.
She, as a result, faced several other counts of electronic fraud, stealing and handling stolen properties against the law.
Britney was released on a bond of Ksh1 million with alternative cash bail of Ksh300, 000 while Florence was released on a bond of Ksh500, 000 with alternative cash bail of Ksh200, 000.
