ACC 18 OF 2010 - R vs Francis Kimosop

Summary: The accused was asigned to be the coordinator of a training around HIV and AIDS Prevention and Life Skills approved and organized by the Ministry of Education. He was entrusted with workshop funds worth 9,732,000. While accounting for these monies, the accused attached payment schedules, payment receipts and other documents to his surrender voucher. Irregularities surfaced in as far as these accounting documents were concerned. The KACC established that registration schedules had been altered and forged to add names. Key documents were not stamped as required. Other key documents were missing. Others were not signed as required by the relevant officials. Witnesses testified that while their names appeared on transport reimbursement forms, they did not at all receive the monies showed in those forms. Others claimed the amounts as indicated on payment schedules were enhanced and disputed signatures. Participant lists indicated numbers lower than those indicated in payment schedules. The accused denied the charges claiming that documentation pertaining to attendees was handled by Course organizers, and that he only paid facilitators. Court rejected this contention, and in reviewing the evidence laid before it, found the accused guilty on all counts.
