The chief was granted Sh200, 000 bond bail for stealing the dogs imported from South Africa
Barbara O'Connor, the popular bestselling author of the book “How to Steal a Dog” may need to visit Nyeri, Kenya and request a special audience with Nyeri county assistant chief, Paul Gachiri. Paul Gachiri was arraigned in court for stealing two dogs belonging to a preacher.
There is no doubt that the interview will give Barbara O'Connor hands-on knowledge on how to really steal a dog. The information may come in handy in preparation for a sequel to her book.
Now on a serious note, news coming out of Nyeri County in Kenya reports that an assistant chief in Nyeri County was today, May 9, arraigned in court for stealing two dogs belonging to a pastor.
The Kihuri sub location administrator, Paul Gachiri was accused of stealing the two pets belonging to Othaya preacher Thomas Wahome of Helicopter Ministries.
Speaking in court, the pastor said the two animals disappeared from his home upon which he embarked on a successful search that led him to Gachiri's home. It was at this time that he sought to know whether or not those dogs truly belonged to the administrator.
Gachiri, who denied stealing the dogs, in his defense failed to explain how he acquired the canines. This prompted Wahome to proceed with the matter to court.
The matter was heard before Othaya Resident Magistrate Monicah Munyendo.
The local chief, Paul Gachiri who continued to deny any wrongdoing was released on a cash bail of KSh100, 000 or a bond of KSh200, 000 with a surety of similar amount.
Pastor of the Helicopter Ministries, Thomas Wahome claims to have imported the dogs from South Africa.
