When you don’t pay her for the services she offers you at your comfort zone, she will pay herself. This is what Joyce Okoth did after she visited Mr Myron Odhiambo in Nairobi West for four night stands without pay.
Joyce was invited by Mr Odhiambo to visit him at his Nairobi West house and offer her services for four days that began on January 2nd, 2019. And on the night of January 5th she left with a laptop, three tablets and a hard disc which Mr Odhiambo had carried home from his work place. The items were worth Sh300, 000. Joyce would later be charged at Kibera law court.
“I went to bed leaving Joyce watching movies in the living room. A few minutes later, she came into the bedroom to borrow my phone which she wanted to use for internet. After some hours I grew suspicious after I woke up to aloud silence since it is very unusual for her to be quiet since she loves listening to music,” Odhiambo told law Kibera court.
“I got up to check if she had fallen asleep in the living room. I found her missing together with my electronics” he added.
“I called her and asked why she had stolen from me. She bluntly responded that she was paying herself for the services she had rendered. I later reported the matter at Nairobi West Police Station” He further clarified to the court.
Joyce on her part told the same court that she had taken the said electronics as a way of compensation for her services after spending four days at his house “serving him without pay”.
This Mr Odhiambo denied saying they never had any agreement neither did he pick her from the streets. Adding, it was the first time she was visiting him in his house.
