The son of the late former minister John Joseph Kamotho was on Wednesday charged with forging a medical document.
Charles Githii Kamotho was accused of forging the document with the intention of disinheriting his sister in a Sh260 million estate.
He allegedly on October 12, 2015, at an unknown place within the country, with the intent to defraud, forged a Medical Report dated October 12, 2015, for Marianne Nyokabi Kamotho purporting it be a genuine Medical report made and signed by Dr Mucheru Wangombe.
He was charged with a second count that on November 6, 2020, at Milimani law court, with intent to defraud, knowingly uttered the forged Medical Report dated October 12, 2015, to Deputy Registrar Milimani High court in a succession matter purporting it to be genuine.
He denied the charges before Milimani chief magistrate Wendy Micheni and through his lawyer pleaded for lenient bond terms.
Before taking a plea, Githii had made an application through his lawyer to defer the plea taking, saying that the complainant was related to him and wanted to settle the case out of court.
He also said he needed more time to go through the charge sheet and verify if it was valid.
The prosecution opposed the application and urged the court to dismiss it and have the accused plead to the charges.
The court, however, dismissed his application.
Gathii was released on a cash bail of Sh150,000 or a bond of Sh300,000
