Noordin Haji goes after bank managers who allowed Kabura to withdraw money in sacks

Finally!

The case was initially filed and prosecuted during Keriako Tobiko's reign at the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The DPP had initially entered into talks with some of the suspects to have an out-of-court settlement, an arrangement that Haji has since overruled.

One of the famous transactions was that of the infamous Josephine Kabura who withdrew at least Sh50 million, most of it carried in sacks.

Those who have been charged over the fraudulent transactions include Family Bank CEO John King'ori, former CEO Peter Munyiri, KTDA Branch Manager Robert Oscar Nyaga and Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Manager Charles Kamau.

Others were Head of Risk and Compliance Raphael Mutinda, Operations Supervisor Nancy Njambi, Platinum Relationship Manager Meldon Awino and Customer Service Supervisor Josephine Wairi.

The charge sheet against the suspects indicated that they had “aided and abetted” money laundering by Kabura, by failing to report her suspicious transactions.

CBK requires banks to notify it of any transaction involving more that Sh1 million.
