A middle-aged man has been charged with stealing Ksh991, 442 from a bank account of a deceased person.

Charles Githara Kimani was charged with conspiring with others at large to steal the money from Elizabeth Njahira Waiganjo's account domiciled at Co-operative Bank Stima Plaza Branch on diverse dates between May 24, 2019, and September 27, 2022.

Further, Kimani was charged with stealing documents in a succession case at a city law firm with respect to the estate of the late Elizabeth Waiganjo.
