A middle aged man has been charged with 18 counts of forging documents of land parcels located along General Mathenge Road valued at Ksh. 500 Million belonging to businessman Jimmy Wanjigi.

The accused Sammy Njuguna was produced before Chief Magistrate Susan Shitubi where he denied all the criminal charges.

According to the prosecuting counsel Anderson Gikunda the offences were committed between 2018 and 2019.

The accused is said to have forged documents, articles of memorandum which purported to have been issued by Ministry of Lands and registrar of companies.

The parcels of land in question belong to the former presidential aspirant Jimmy Maina Wanjigi who has been enlisted as the key witness.


Arrest warrant on accomplices

The prosecution  applied  for the warrant  of arrest  against  accused accomplices  David Njenga, Henry Njoroge, Anthony  Maseno, Cissy Kalunde, Valentin Jelimo, Lawrence Njogu, Kepher Odhiambo and Martin  Esakina.

Consequently the trial magistrate directed the eight accused persons be arrested.

The prosecution  told  the court that  accused, Mr Njuguna  should  not be released  on a cash bail  and seriousness  of the charges  and be admitted  to bond and surety  so that he does not  disappear  from the jurisdiction  of the court.

The  Magistrate  directed  the matter  be mentioned  on 10th May for purposes  of consolidation  with other  accused  persons who have already been  charged.

She reserved her ruling for bail until tomorrow 27th April 2023.
