A woman is in trouble after an Asian man narrated to court how she tried to swindle him Ksh 120M. He told Milimani Law Courts how the 33 year-old woman forged death certificate, a marriage certificate and a birth certificate of a non-existing child in a well-planned scheme to rob him the amount.
The 70 year-old Alihadi Dafilla Ali told the court that he received a phone call from the Kenya Commercial Bank while in his office in Kampala, summoning him to their office in Nairobi. He took a journey via road after missing flight to Kenya and upon arriving at the bank’s manager’s office, the manager was in company of two officers from the Central Bank of Kenya.
He told the court that he was shocked to be asked whether he had died. They also asked him whether he was married with one child and he told them he was once married to a lady from Yemen, her name was Fatuma Abdulmoniem but they later divorced in 1983 having no kid together.
He told the court that the bank told him about a lady who had visited them claiming that he was dead and she was his widow. He stated that he told a bank staff identified as Rotich that he didn’t know the woman since he had not gotten married since 1983. “I was shown my death and birth certificates of Amina Zainab alleging to be my daughter, and also a land sales agreement,” said Mr. Ali. He added that the certificates are forged with the intentions of stealing money from his account.
In the case, Mercy Njoki also known as Fatuma and Bakari Abdalla Vuwa were charged with conspiring to defraud the old man Ksh 120M.
