CID urged to probe Nakuru County minister with forged papers

05 May 2014, 16:03

Nakuru - Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri has written to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to commence formal investigations on the Nakuru County minister who used fake certificates to get the job.

The TNA lawmaker, who blew the whistle on the officer's academic papers, said investigations conducted by a local Non-Governmental Organization in collaboration with Counties Efficiency Development indicated that the county trade minister, Sam Gitau, presented forged academic papers to the recruiting panel and was hired on strength of the papers.

"I raised the issue and people said l was interfering with county officials and politicking. l am now vindicated. l urge the CID to move with speed and act on the matter,” he said.

Kimani said the previous service board was compromised to allow Gitau to hold the powerful docket and called upon the governor to take responsibility of the matter and order the minister to immediately resign.

Gitau has been at the centre of a controversy after the vocal first-time MP accused him of presenting fake papers to get employed.

The fate of the minister, who was once a strong campaign ally of governor Kinuthia Mbugua, now hangs on the balance after the shocking revelations.
