A man, Jim Basil Agot, was today arraigned in Milimani Law Courts and charged with personating a public officer contrary to the Law.
Mr.Agot is said to have presented himself to KRA offices in Nairobi between March 1 and 23, 2022 as a person employed by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), ICT department.
The prosecution submitted that Mr.Agot approached officer Christine Moraa and introduced himself as an ICT officer from KRA.
He proceeded to dupe her that the Revenue Institution had instructed him to extract KRA internal information by installing Mikrotick Routeboard gadget into the KRA local area network (LAN) port.
The motive of extracting the said information remains unknown.
However, we expect the Investigation team to unearth more facts involving the crime as the matter approaches the hearing stage in Court.
Appearing before Chief Magistrate Micheni Wendy of Milimani Law Courts, the accused denied particulars of the case and was released on a Bond of Ksh 500,000 and an alternative cash bail of Ksh 200,000.
The case was set to proceed on April 8, 2022, for pretrial.
