A couple accused of defrauding Naivasha based Oserian Sacco Society has been slapped with a Sh20 million bond or an Sh10 million cash bail each after they denied the fraud charges.
Appearing before a Naivasha court, the two accused Steve Omondi and Judith Onyango were said to have stolen a total of Sh12.3 million in a criminal case where over Sh64 million belonging to flower farm workers savings was allegedly wired by Sacco officials between 2012 to 2015.
Omondi and Judith, former staffers at the Sacco, were accused of each stealing Sh7.7 million and Sh4.7million respectively from the Sacco’s coffers which left contributing workers in limbo.
According to court reports, the two who had been on the run from authorities were arrested on Monday by Nairobi based detectives.
The criminal case affected hundreds of workers who had remitted their savings through the Oserian Sacco Society with the hope of recouping their contributions for future needs.
Oserian farm is one of the biggest and successful Naivasha based plant that produces fresh flower cuts and vegetables that earns the country millions of shillings in exports inflows.
The case is set for mention on 15th November this year.
