The businessman was charged at the Milimani law courts with obtaining Ksh3.2 million from Fatuma Ali by falsely pretending that he could enjoin her in a supply tender that he had been awarded at The United Nations for the mobile phones, laptops and accessories.
Kiprotich allegedly committed the offence between March 24 2016 and March 31 2016 at Diamond Trust bank in Nairobi.
He is also charged with issuing bad cheques on account of Jubilee Classical Enterprises, K, Ltd, “while knowing that the said account had insufficient funds.”
The charge sheet states that he He committed the offence on April 21 2017 in payment of Ksh 900,000 to Fatuma Ali and another one for Ksh245,000
He denied he committed a similar offence on May 7 2016 at KTDA building along Tom Mboya Street, Nairobi to one Chemutai Kosekei Rispher for a payment of some Ksh420,000.
