Three Safari Park Hotel employees have been charged with jointly stealing over Sh 16 Million from the hotel.
IT supervisor George Gatura and cashiers Anne Aketch and Caroline Wangui are accused of jointly stealing Sh2.2milion on diverse dates between April 16 and July 2 last year by virtue of their employment.
Gatura and Wangui were further charged with stealing over Sh2.5 million on dates between April 28 and November 29 last year.
Between dates April 17 and November 22, Gatura is alleged to have stolen over Sh3.7million.
Further, between March 30 last year and January 3 this year, he stole another Sh8.2 million according to police records.
The court heard that on the material day, suspicion was raised after a customer paid Sh42,000 to reserve a table and was issued a receipt but the agreement was not met.
The customer reported the matter to the management who conducted an internal audit and discovered Sh16.8 million was missing.
According to police records, Wangui and Aketch took cash from customers and issued receipts without the same being reflected in the computer system.
The matter was reported to the police who arrested the accused after investigations.
The three denied the charges and were released on a cash bail of Sh500,000 or a bond of Sh1 million each.
The case will be heard on May 3.
