Case in which Egyptian business woman has been charged with duping company 19.8 M adjourned

The case in which an Egyptian Businesswoman was charged with duping Kenyan company 19.8 M in a sugar deal was adjourned.

This is after the parties were informed that the trial magistrate Lucas Onyina was away so the matter was mentioned before a different magistrate.

Anan Fatah Salama appeared before Magistrate Susan Shitubi for the mention of her case.

Lawyer Danstan Omari for Salama told court that they were in court for the mention to confirm if she had settled the complainant as she had told court.

Omari said his client is still in the process of sending the money but they had a few challenges with the mode of which to send the money from Egypt to Kenya.

Shitubi directed them to appear before Magistrate Onyina on December 18 for further directions.

In the case, It is alleged that on 25th October 2023, being the CEO of Enhanced Trade and Shipping, obtained from Mary Wangui Mwangi, director of Marangu Enterprises Limited, a sum of USD 130,000, transmitted through swift funds transfer from Equity Bank Limited bank account by falsely pretending that she was in a position to supply 1,000 metric tons of brown sugar to the said Marangu Enterprises Limited a fact she knew to be false.

Omari had told court last week that Salama needed one week to be able to settle the complainant because she was to process money from Egypt to Kenya.

Onyina released her on a Sh 600,00 cash bail and one contact persons and in the meantime her passport will be held pending conclusion of her case.
