Former Kenyan President Daniel Arap Moi’s grandson has appeared before the Nakuru Chief Magistrate’s court, charged with stealing two mobile phones valued at Ksh19,000 (about UgShs 1,140,000).

According to reports, Collins Toroitich Moi, a son to former first son Jonathan Moi, allegedly stole the phones belonging to his daughter May Chelimo and a friend.

It is that Collins invited Ms Chelimo, a second year university student, for lunch at a hotel Nakuru, and later relieved the two girls their phones so the group could have an uninterrupted conversation.

According to Mr Moi’s lawyer Ochang’ Ajigo, May is a second year university student born to Collins and his former girlfriend, something that could have precipitated the young girl’s anger to take her father to court.

Collins Moi was released on a cash bail of Kshs7000 (approx. Ugshs210.000) or a bond of Kshs20, 000 (approx. Ugshs600.000). He returns to court on August 15.
