Court Wants Jubilee Politician Arrested Over Sh2.2m Fraud

By Richard Munguti

Police have been ordered to arrest a Jubilee Party politician charged with defrauding a businesswoman of Sh2.2 million.

Peter Mburu Muthoni, alias Solomon Kamau Nyingi, who is eyeing the Kaguduini ward seat in Murang’a County, will be produced in court on May 22 to plead to six counts of obtaining money through false pretences and forgery.

Issuing the warrant of arrest, Senior Principal Magistrate Kenneth Cheruiyot said Mr Muthoni had been summoned to appear in court to answer the six counts filed against him by the Director of Public Prosecutions.

He did not turn up, prompting angry residents of the ward to protest in the court precincts and shouting that they do not want to elect a suspect.

The charge sheet handed over to Mr Cheruiyot read that on diverse dates between June 18 and 29, 2016 at Pioneer House in Nairobi, jointly with others not before the court with intent to defraud, obtained Sh2.2 million from Alice Peninah Wanjiku Guchu by pretending that he was in a position to sell her a motor vehicle, a fact he knew to be false.

Mr Muthoni is facing five other counts, among them one of forging and making a national identity card in the name of Solomon Kamau Nyingi.

The prosecution alleges Mr Muthoni purported that the ID was genuine and had been issued to him by the registrar of persons.
