A driver at President Uhuru Kenyatta’s residence, Nakuru State House, was on Thursday charged before a Nakuru court over theft.

Mr. Albert Teken Kiptui is accused of using the Government’s vehicle to transport stolen goods.

The court heard that Kiptui together with his accomplices broke into a building and stole 400 bales of hay worth Sh160,000 belonging to a Mr. Peter Kipyegon.

Chief Magistrate Geoffrey Oduor, who was presiding over the case, was told that Kiptui stole the grass and loaded it onto an Isuzu lorry, registration number KAN 372N, before speeding off.

Acting on a tip-off from neighbors, police officers intercepted Kiptui at Salgaa market along the Nakuru- Eldoret highway.

The robbery is said to have taken place on the night of May 23 in Rongai, Nakuru County.

He was released on a 50,000 cash bail.

Margistrate Oduor stated that the case will be heard on May 29.
