A son of former National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi on Wednesday told a Milimani court how he lost over Sh700,000 after interacting with people he believes spiked his drink at an entertainment joint in Kericho.

According to Brian Njoka, the incident happened on the night of August 22, 2019 where his bank accounts were all cleared.

Testifying before Senior Resident Magistrate Ben Mark, Mr Njoka said after an interaction with his suspects that lasted less than 12 hours, a sum of Sh720,800 had been wired from his three bank accounts to an unknown phone number M-Pesa account.

The accounts were in Standard Chartered bank, NCBA bank and Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB). He also disclosed that some money was sent to a Co-operative bank account.

Two suspects, Alex Njagi Kathuro alias Alex Muhia and Dennis Murimi Wanjiku, are jointly charged with defrauding Njoka of his cell phone worth Sh100,000 and cash amounting to Sh720,800.

The hearing of the case resumes on October 24.
