Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology students, Anthony Mwangi and Ann Wambui were on Monday charged with conspiracy to defraud a bank of sh190 million through hacking. The two were charged with a second account of stealing.
According to the court between October 20 and 22 at NCBA Bank head office in Nairobi’s Upper Hill area, the accused stole sh25.4 million from the bank. They committed the offense jointly with others who were not before the court.
The two denied the charges before Milimani Principal magistrate Caroline Muthoni and were granted sh500,000 bail each with an alternative bond of sh2 million. Both students had pleaded with the court for lenient bond terms saying that they are second-year students.
The case will be mentioned on November 10, for pre-trial. Their lawyer told the court that his clients would comply with the orders issued.Follow us in social media:
