After failing to present herself to detectives for her fingerprint to be taken, the whereabouts of a college student at the center of a Sh108 million gift probe remain unclear.
Felista Nyamathira Njoroge, according to her lawyer Walter Owaga, gave birth in Belgium last month and has been unable to travel to the country to present herself to the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) for verification.
In further contradictory information, Ms Njoroge is in the country, according to lawyer Thomas Maosa, and they have orders to represent her in the case where the Asset Recovery Agency (ARA) is seeking to reclaim the money as proceeds of crime.
Lady Justice Esther Maina postponed the case for another 45 days due to the mystery surrounding her whereabouts, allowing DCI to determine the true identity of the lady purported to be a student at Nairobi Technical Training Institute.
Ms Njoroge’s money is being sought by the ARA due to allegations that she is involved in international money laundering activities with her Belgian boyfriend Marc De Mesel.
Justice Maina ordered that the case be heard on July 13th, when the DCI is scheduled to deliver a report on Ms Njoroge’s identification.
