A middle-aged man was on Tuesday 1st December arranged in court for stealing a bible in a supermarket in Nairobi.


Augustine Wanyonyi was arraigned in court for stealing two Revised Standards bibles worth 1840 at Naivas Supermarket Development House along Moi Avenue in Nairobi.

According to a police report, Wanyoni entered the supermarket at around 7:00 pm where he acted as a client before stealing the holy books.

“He picked two Revised Standard bibles valued at Ksh920 each,” the report read in part.

It’s alleged that after picking the said bible books, the accused hid them in his jacket and passed the cashier table without paying.

The security personnel manning the supermarket became suspicious and stopped him. They then searched him and recovered the two bibles in his jacket and was then escorted to Central Police Station.

The accused pleaded not guilty before Chief Magistrate Wendy Mucheni and was granted a cash bail of Ksh20,000 or an alternative bond of a similar amount.
