Former Issaquah HOA president is headed to trial
November 15, 2011
The man accused of bilking more than $10,000 from a local homeowners association is due in court early next year.
Kennedy M. Mulwa, 27, faces a first-degree theft charge, because authorities said he stole money from the homeowners association in Sammamish Crown Condominiums, 4330 W. Lake Sammamish Parkway S.E.
King County prosecutors said Mulwa, serving as the homeowners association president, transferred $11,370 from the homeowners association’s account to his business, Orwell Tours and Travel.
In January 2010, a homeowners association employee discovered a withdrawal from a reserve account. Other board members later confronted Mulwa about the withdrawal, but said he lacked the funds to replace the money in the homeowner association’s account. Instead, he did not return the money, prosecutors said.
Mulwa is due in King County Superior Court for a trial Jan. 4.
