Woman charged with stealing pistol from DP Ruto’s guard, selling it for Sh3,000


A woman was charged yesterday for stealing a gun from the deputy president’s security officer at his residence in Mombasa.

Elsie Kazungu alias Gladys Wanjala reportedly stole the pistol from the police constable’s pillow and sold it to Joshua Oliech in Kisauni.

The two were charged with theft.

The charge sheet reads that on December 19, 2019, Kazungu “secretly stole a mobile phone valued at Sh1,200, a Ceska pistol serial number E1546 loaded with 15 bullets from the deputy president’s residence.”

The gun is yet to be found, but Kazungu and Oliech were charged before Chief Magistrate Edna Nyalotti.

The court freed them on a KSh200,000 bond each.
