Businesswoman who implicated flying squad officers charged in court

02 December 2014, 12:48

Nakuru - A businesswoman who falsely implicated four flying squad officers in a robbery case leading to their interdiction was Monday charged with giving false information at a Nakuru court.

Christine Kajuju Mwiti who appeared before Resident magistrate Loice Komingoi denied that on March 3, 2014 at Nakuru Central police station she gave false information to Inspector Paul Omollo accusing the flying squad officers of stealing KES 400 000 after they arrested her at Nakuru’s section 58 Estate.

Kajuju further faced two other charges of assaulting another woman, Hellen Muriithi, on March 2, 2014 as well as breach of peace after she allegedly issued threats against Caroline Nanjala on the same date at Section 58.

Kajuju’s two other accomplices, Peter Maina and Rebbeca Omambia, also appeared in court to answer to assault charges.

Maina was accused of assaulting Francis Kamau on the same date Kajuju was arrested whereas Rebbeca was accused of issuing false information when she appeared at Nakuru Central police station to record a statement seeking to be Kajuju’s witness.

They all denied the charges and were released on a bond of KES 30 000 each and sureties of similar amount.

The four officers; Corporal Kazungu Ngumbao (67972), police constables Nicholas Kirongo (63134), Yagan Kipsang (77273) and James Rotich (59608) were on March accused of robbing Kajuju and unlawfully confining her after they arrested her.

According to a report initially forwarded to the Director of Criminal Investigations, the four officers were accused of accosting  Kajuju who operates a wines and spirits outlet in South and North Rift on March 2 at around 10.30 pm shortly after she closed her business at Section 58 before they bundled her into their saloon vehicle despite pleading with them to be allowed to pick some money that was in her vehicle.

The officers were interdicted to allow for investigations into the mysterious incident.

However the interdiction of the officers has since been lifted after investigations into the incident vindicated them.
