The two Partick Ngare Muchina and Congolese national Muke wa Mansoni Didier say the prosecution had dragged them to court without proper evidence and their cash bail should be refunded immediately.

Two of the three suspects who had been charged with Sh 64 M gold fraud have been set free by the court for lack of evidence.

When the three appeared before Magistrate Susan Shitubi, the prosecution made an application to have them set free.

“There is not enough evidence to convict the two accused, “added Shitubi.

The State Prosecution, after reviewing the file , informed the trial court that they intend to withdraw the criminal charges against the two since the evidence produced before the court does not link the two to the alleged fraud.

The two had been charged with several counts of conspiracy to commit a felony and obtaining money by false pretenses from Iranian businessman Sadegh Sadeghain Abolfazi.

The state informed the court that the second accused, Kelvin Mwaura Ngotho, will proceed with the trial, stressing that the evidence before it is overwhelming.

They were charged last year with defrauding a foreigner of Sh64 million in a fake gold sale business.

They had been accused of obtaining USD 500,000 from Sadegh Sadeghian Abolfa by falsely pretending that they were in a position to sell him 60 kilograms of gold, a fact they knew to be false.

The accused persons had also been charged with conspiring to commit the said offence.

They were alleged to have committed the offence on diverse dates between April 2021 and April 14, 2023, at Kilimani, Nairobi, jointly with others, not before court.

They had been out on a bond of Sh3 million with an alternative cash bail of Sh1 million.

They now say that a lot of their time was wasted in the corridors of justice.
