One man faces charges after a police investigation led to the discovery of 252 bags of Government of Kenya subsidized fertilizer in a local church.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) says Robert Kipng’etich Bett, aka Raphael, a farm manager employed by a Kericho-based businessman identified as Joseph Kiplangat Kete, is charged with possession of stolen property found in Grace Covenant Church in Ololunga, Narok South, where he was arrested.

As per the latest police update, this suspect was arraigned today in Milimani Law Courts and freed on a Sh500,000 cash bail pending the 1st hearing of the case on Friday, January 5, 2024.

In working the case up, the officers found that the large quantity of fertilizer was bought from North Rift by another yet-to-be-identified suspect with a criminal record and is on their radar right now as they try to solve the matter.

The goods are in the possession of the police and awaiting owners to identify them.
