A Criminal Investigation Department Officer Friday identified himself in a photograph as one of the officers surrounding former Mungiki leader Kimani Ruo who disappeared from the court precincts after acquittal.
Testifying in a case in which he has been mentioned as one of the officers behind the disappearance of Ruo, CID officer Lawrence Muchoki attached to Kamukunji police station told justice George Dulu that he met Ruo at the courts entrance in the company of two other police officers from Central police station on the day of the alleged disappearance.
He said he had gone to the court to testify in another case.
Ruo’s family filed a case last July after he disappeared seeking that police produce him.
His co accused Maina Njenga was sentenced to five years imprisonment for being in illegal possession of firearms.
Meanwhile, justice Hatari Waweru has declined to issue an order compelling deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi to tell the Kenya Anti Corruption Commission -KACC- of how he acquired a 10 million shillings property in Nairobi’s Woodley estate.
The judge instead ordered that the case proceeds for interparties hearing in the interest of justice.
The property in question is a plot and a residential.
At the same time, Anthony Kimani Wainaina charged with stealing over 21 million shillings from Barclays Bank of Kenya South C branch has finally been released on a cash bail of 200 thousand shillings.
Kimani had been accused of presenting a forged cheque to a cashier at the Bank on April 14th.
