Law to ban persons not returning money received by error

Hi Listers,

I come from the school of thought where we don’t need to come up with laws
for every seemingly new vice perpetrated through technology. This is theft,
similar to the case of the guy from Embu who build a house with money
erroneously deposited in his bank account
nairobiwire.com/2020/06/man-in-tight-spot-after-building-house-with-money-mistakenly-deposited-in-his-bank-account.html
.

The Penal Code CAP 63:
268.
Definition of stealing
(1)

A person who fraudulently and without claim of right takes anything capable
of being stolen, or fraudulently converts to the use of any person, other
than the general or special owner thereof, any property, is said to steal
that thing or property.

Kind regards,
