An employee of Menengai Oil Refineries charged with the theft of Sh2.5 million from the company was yesterday ordered to appear before court once a month before the start of his trial on July 18.

 Principal Magistrate Joe Omido said that Zahir Ali Shah (pictured) was a flight risk because he was not a Kenyan.

Shah had pleaded not guilty when he was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Josephat Kalo on Tuesday and was released on a bond of Sh800,000 and an alternative cash bail of Sh500,000. He was freed after paying cash bail.
