A Chinese woman was last week Friday charged in a Kiambu court for stealing and exporting goat testicles worth over Sh6 million.
Lei Yunyan of Golden Pacific Investments is accused of obtaining the goat testicles from a supplier and failing to pay.
According to the charge sheet, on diverse dates between September 1, 2021, and November 23, 2022, Yunyan by means of a fraudulent device obtained goat testicles worth Sh6,026,775 from one Marsa Goto Ado.
Alongside the testicles were other goat pieces weighing 113.2 kilos, which were for export.
The supplier claimed frequent visits to Lei Yunyan’s office to push for the invoices to be honoured had bore no fruit.
Appearing before Kiambu Senior Principal Magistrate Manuela Kînyanjui, the Chinese national denied the charges.
Through her lawyer, Yunyan said she was merely an accountant at the firm.
“She is neither a shareholder nor a director,” the lawyer said.
Prosecutor Lindsey Mugambi opposed her release on bail saying being a foreigner she is likely to be a flight risk.
“I urge the court to take into consideration the gravity of the matter and the amount of money involved,” Mugambi told the court.
The prosecutor also informed the court that five witnesses will testify in the case once the trial begins.
In her defence, the accused asked the court to free her on bail since she was expectant.
Magistrate Kînyanjui released Lei Yunyan on a Sh500,000 cash bail or Sh2 million Bond.
The court also directed her to deposit her Passport in court and in form the court of her two Kenyan contact persons.
The magistrate directed the matter to be mentioned on April 5 before the hearing starts on July 19.
