A director of a Nairobi company has been charged with obtaining Sh26 million credit from a communication firm by false pretence.
Manjeet Singh Dhanjal denied four counts of obtaining credit by false pretence and issuing bad cheques before Kibera Chief Magistrate Ann Onginjo.
He was arrested on July 24 and detained at Kilimani Police Station. He was released after depositing Sh200,000 cash bail.
The prosecution told the court that Mr Dhanjal (pictured), a director at Spraymasters Limited, on January 24, 2012 at UA Communications Limited obtained credit for $250,000(Sh26 Million) by pretending that he was in a position to pay.
Dhanjal was further accused that on the same date at Spraymaster Ltd offices off Mombasa Road, he allegedly issued bad cheques totaling Sh2.9 million to UA Communication Ltd purporting them to be genuine while knowing the funds in that account were insufficient.
The prosecution informed the court that four witnesses have been lined up to testify in the case once the hearing commences on November 23.
Dhanjal was released on a Sh500,000 cash bail or a Sh2 million bond.
