Steve Onyango, Nancy Akinyi-she is accused of stealing from Mr. Onyango

A prominent constitutional lawyer based in Nakuru County is reeling in shock after a woman he picked from a high-end nightclub drugged him and swept his house clean of household goods worth almost half a million shillings.

Steve Onyango Kabita (pictured), a flamboyant constitutional lawyer who is well-known in court corridors and social scenes in Nakuru, has sued 27-year-old Nancy Akinyi, a woman he met in bar.

According to court documents, Kabita says he met the light-skinned woman on the night of November 3 last year at Club 64, a popular joint situated on the sixth floor of a building along Nakuru’s Kenyatta Avenue.

Kabita says Akinyi introduced herself as a third-year Egerton University student, completely disarming the heavily built lawyer who wasted no time instructing a barmaid to supply his newly found guest with drinks.

“She was so beautiful, polite and outgoing. I did not for once doubt her claim that she was a university student studying commerce. But the truth was revealed when I took her to my place,” said the lawyer.

 Kabita claims they drove home at around 9pm and Akinyi later spiked his drink when he excused himself to answer a call of nature. He says he continued drinking when he came back from the bathroom but started feeling dizzy. He remembers waking up in the morning to find the woman gone and his prized household items missing as well.

Kabita says Akinyi stole a Samsung digital camera worth Sh13,499, a BlackBerry phone costing Sh6,000, assorted clothes valued at Sh20,000, a Samsung phone worth Sh10,000, Ampex woofer valued at Sh16,000, a laptop worth Sh250,000, a Techno mobile phone that cost Sh20,000, a gold watch worth Sh14,000, Timberland boots with a value of Sh10,000 and assorted silver rings and chains valued at Sh50,000.

But the mother of three, who says she has never stepped into a university, has disputed the lawyer’s claims. She says that, “The lawyer was too drunk and at some point we had a scuffle. He locked the door and hid the keys in a shoe thinking I wasn’t watching.”

Akinyi, who says she she sat for her KCSE at a Nakuru school in 2002, denied robbing the former Moi University law graduate of household items worth Sh450,298 at Afraha area in the outskirts of Nakuru town on November 3, last year. She was released on a Sh200,000 bond or an alternative cash bail of Sh100,000.
