A casual labourer was filmed while he emptied the coffers of James Cathedral Church in Murang’a town on Thursday.
CCTV cameras captured Peter Muiya Irungu, who is also a faithful helping himself with the faithful’s offerings.
Church management put the secret cameras after a spate of burglaries in the church. And eventually they made a breakthrough.
It is said he used a wire to pull the notes from the safe box. He usually attended the church to monitor and afterwards strike.
He is now in police custody awaiting trial in Murang’a Law Courts.
