Egyptian Businesswoman charged with duping Kenyan company 19.8 M is a sugar deal business.

An Egyptian Businesswoman was on Tuesday arraigned before a Milimani court and charged with duping a Kenyan company Sh 19.8 million by lying to them that she would import brown sugar from Egypt to Kenya.

Anan Fatah Salama was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Lucas Onyina and denied the charge of obtaining money by false pretences.

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.

Through her lawyer Danstan Omari, Salama asked court to grant her lenient bond terms saying she is in talks with the complainant to settle the matter out of court.

Omari said Salama needs one week to be able to settle the complainant because she needs to process money from Egypt to Kenya.

Onyina released him 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.
