A 32-year-old finance manager has been charged with conspiracy to defraud Naivas Supermarket of Sh33.8 million.

The court was informed that Dennis Muchina Thiaka committed the offense on diverse dates between January 16 and September 2020, with several others who were not arraigned.

The prosecutor told Nairobi Magistrate’s Court that Thiaka conspired to defraud Naivas Supermarket of Sh33,808,985 by virtue of his employment as a finance manager and accountant at Achievo Company Limited.

Thiaka pleaded not guilty to the one count of conspiracy to defraud.

Nairobi Senior Resident Magistrate Jane Kamau, whom he appeared before, released him on a cash bail of Sh500,000 or Sh3 million bond.
