The DCI wants the bank account of a member of the Ngirita family, which is accused of fraudulently receiving millions of shillings from the National Youth Service (NYS), to remain frozen as the monies are proceeds of crime.

Ms Phyllis Njeri Ngirita has filed an application seeking access to her account at KCB to pay school fees for her son.

Chief Inspector Paul Waweru opposed the application on Monday, saying Ms Ngirita did not give compelling reasons for the freeze order to be lifted.

Mr Waweru, who is attached to the Financial Investigations Unit, further said the offences Ms Ngirita allegedly committed are serious as they involve theft of public funds amounting to Sh455.2 million.

OTHER ARGUMENTS

In his reply filed before Justice Mumbi Ngugi on Monday, the officer also said investigators made several applications to freeze the accounts of Ms Ngirita and her co-accused as the funds in question are proceeds of crime.

He noted that the Assets Recovery Agency (ARA) already forfeited vehicles that Ms Ngirita is believed to have acquired through proceeds of crime.

“The Sh700,000 was obtained by the applicant through a loan from Opportunity International Wedco Limited and is related to proceeds of crime,” Mr Waweru also told the court.

He added that the car used as security for the loan, a Toyota Station Wagon, is also on investigators’ radar.

The detectives have preserved the vehicle amid investigations into the NYS 2 corruption scandal.

The account that Ms Ngirita wants to access was frozen following an order by High Court Judge John Onyiego.

Inspector Waweru said, “The application amounts to abuse of court process as the court has already pronounced itself on this. The applicant should have made the application before Justice Onyiego, who froze the account.”

“ONLY MONEY”

In her application, Ms Ngirita said her Standard Seven son at Pembroke House School in Gilgil has been at home due to arrears amounting to Sh3.4 million.

She claims the Sh800,000 that is locked up at her bank “is the only money I have” and that she acquired it as a loan.

Her lawyer Evans Ondieki said he was not a position to respond immediately to the DCI as he was served late.

Mr Ondieki also said the DCI, the ARA and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution have ganged up and mixed their constitutional duties.

“The ODPP should be an independent office and impartial but it is acting as one unit with the ASA and DCI. This is unconstitutional and against the principle of innocence. They are fused and there no checks and balances,” he said.

Ms Ngirita’s application will be heard on March 3.

Decomposing bodies of a couple that has been missing for more than a week were found in their house in Laini centre off the Nairobi-Nakuru highway, yesterday.

A foul smell emanating from the house of the 72-year-old-man and his wife, 62, led to their recovery. Police have launched investigations into the incident.

There were conflicting reports about the deaths with some claiming that the two were murdered while others suspected that they could have died of carbon monoxide emitted from a jiko.

Police declined to give names of the deceased until the next of kin are informed. Emotions ran high as locals viewed the bodies.

A village elder, Moses Mwathi, revealed that the couple was working in a quarry before they went missing.

Mwathi said neighbours thought that they had travelled to their rural home but got concerned after a foul smell started emanating from their house.

“On checking they noticed that the house was locked from inside and the bodies could be seen lying on their bed,” he said.

Police gained access into the house after breaking the door. The bodies were taken to the mortuary

Naivasha OCPD Samuel Waweru said initial investigations pointed to carbon monoxide poisoning from a jiko.

“We can’t, however, rule out murder at this moment and only a post-mortem examination will establish the real cause of the death,” said the police boss.

And in the nearby Kinungi village, a 35-year-old farmworker committed suicide by hanging himself in a house.

The body was found by his employer before police were called in. Jim Kimani, a friend to the deceased, said he was in low spirits over debts.

“He claimed that some people he owed money were harassing him but we never thought that he would commit suicide,” Kimani said.

Do you know this man caught on CCTV stealing laptop in Mirema flat? – VIDEO

CCTV footage has emerged showing the moment a man stole a laptop from a house in a city flat.

The footage, captured last week, shows the unidentified male masquerading as a tenant of the flat and waiting as a tenant opens the gate door before he follows her in.

The man then starts going around the flat looking for any unlocked doors.

The suspect is seen moving floor after floor until he finally finds an unlocked door.

He then gets in and hastily makes away with a bag with what is understood to be a laptop.

Mr Muriithi, the landlord of Mufu Heights, which is located along Mirema Road in Nairobi, suspects that the man captured on CCTV could be working for a moving company.

Spotted in the apartment

He said that it was the second time the man had been spotted in the apartment. In the first incident, a tenant lost a wristwatch.

“We suspect that he works for a moving company and he helped a tenant to either move in or out and he came back and surveyed the building sometime in September. He has returned and a tenant has lost a laptop,” Mr Mureithi said.

He added that the victim had left the house without locking the door because his wife had forgotten her keys in the house.

The matter was reported at Kasarani police station with members of the public being requested to help in identifying him.
