Flesch was accused of committing the offences on diverse between 2004 and 2006 at Bethlehem Nyumba ya Mkate in Limuru.
He denied the offences and was denied bail and remanded until April 23 when the case against him will be heard.
Meanwhile Old Mutual Unit Trust has been sued for allegedly misrepresenting facts to an investor who lost over 850 thousand shillings.
Simon Malonza claimed he was told by an Old Mutual agent that he could earn money at an interest rate of 24% but when he sought to terminate the contract with the trust he was told that all the 850 thousand shillings he had invested since July 2006 was not refundable.
Malonza contends that he was not in an insurance contract with Old Mutual and is entitled to all his deposits that he made since the year 2006. Through lawyer Kithi Kilonzo Malonza wants the court to order the Unit Trust to pay back the money, interest and damages.
Elsewhere a woman has been sentenced to death for killing her husband.
Tabitha Wanjiku Mwaura appeared before Justice Nicholas Ombijja who convicted her and sentenced her to death for killing her husband in Kiambu district.
Ombijja said that the prosecution had provided enough evidence against Wanjikuto prove that she killed her husband Peter Mwaura Mbugua by stabbing him six times in the chest and twice in the stomach.
It was alleged that Wanjiku killed her husband after a business dispute. And the Eastlands Matatu saga is far from over as 30 more owners filed a fresh suit challenging the ban order by local government minister Uhuru Kenyatta.
They claim that the order by the minister is draconian and discriminatory. They want the court to quash the order and allow them to operate their Matatus within Nairobi’s city Centre.
