Kethi alongside her co-accused, Godfrey Ninito Lemiso, were charged on September 2013 with stealing an Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) acknowledgement slip belonging to the National Elections Agency between November 19, 2012 and June 27, 2013.

The prosecution claims that the daughter of the late Education minister,Mutula Kilonzo,allegedly used the Ksh.5 slip as evidence that she was lawfully registered as a voter at Ngong Forest Primary School in Nairobi County.

Her lawyer also faces an additional charge of presenting false documents and handling stolen property.

Ms Kilonzo allegedly produced forged documents to IEBC Returning Officer Salad Boru in Wote, Makueni County, during the nomination exercise for the by-election to replace her father, the late Mutula Kilonzo,for the Senate seat.
