Prominent Jubilee Party blogger, Pauline Njoroge, has raised alarm over the alleged theft of more than Ksh 300,000 from her bank account.
The incident reportedly occurred shortly after her arrest by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), during which her bank cards were confiscated and withheld.
Njoroge, known for her vocal online presence, has asserted that the funds were siphoned off through an online transaction. She took to social media to share her ordeal, stating, “On the evening of 3rd Aug 2023, Ksh 302,842 was withdrawn from my account through an online transaction, a matter my defense team raised in court yesterday since the DCI officers were the only third parties who had had actual possession and access to my bank cards before the theft.”
The situation took a perplexing turn when Njoroge pointed towards a Facebook account named Mary Mukami, whom she deemed a pseudonymous entity.
This account, according to Njoroge, made a post the following morning, on August 4th, 2023, suggesting a connection to the alleged theft. The post, seemingly incriminating, has raised concerns about the safety of Njoroge’s financial assets.
Njoroge’s arrest, alongside her friend and a driver, initially drew attention due to allegations of narcotics possession.
However, these charges were not pursued further when the trio appeared in court two days later. This abrupt shift in the allegations, coupled with the reported theft, has left Njoroge and her supporters puzzled and seeking answers.
