Young girl steals money from her mom’s bank accounts, spends it on boyfriend


Cynthia Cherop, a student at the Eldoret based Moi University, Kenya, has confessed to have stolen Sh70,000 from her mother’s two bank accounts, which she entirely spent on her boyfriend.

Ms Cherop pleaded guilty to stealing the money from Barclays and National banks before spending it with Josephat Ng’ang’a. She has told a court session that she bought second hand (mitumba) clothes for her business.

Barclay’s Bank’s CCTV captured the two love birds leaving the bank after withdrawing the money. The boyfriend would later threaten the mother of his girlfriend (Mrs Milka Chebosisi Sitati) of thorough beating if she would talk of it.

Ng’ang’a denied the attempts of assaulting Ms Cherop’s mother, and was released on a Sh30,000 cash bail.

Chief magistrate Francis Andayi said it was unfortunate that the accused stole the money to spend with her boyfriend whom her mother did not approve of.

However, two of Ms Sitati’s brothers pleaded with the court to release Cherop to them since her mother did not want to see her. They said they wanted her to continue attending college.

State prosecutor Solomon Naulikha asked the court to treat the accused as a first offender and was not opposed to her being ordered to serve probation term.
