Lydia Murugu Wanjohi denied the charge before Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku. She allegedly committed the offence on diverse dates between August 14, 2018 and September 09, 2020 at the organisation's offices in Kariobangi, Nairobi, jointly with others.
She faced another count which she also pleaded not guilty to, that on the same day she stole Sh750,000 belonging to the organisation.
She was released on a cash bail of Sh500,000 with one surety pending the mention of the case next week.
