Former Nakuru Mayor  was today arraigned before a Nakuru court to answer to theft charges.

Appearing before Senior Principal Magistrate Loise Komingoi, Gikaria was charged that on diverse dates of 2-4 July 2012 he stole 21 steel electric poles of streetlights, 23 lanterns and one road sign named Kimani Maingi along Nanyuki road.

On a second account, the court heard that Gikaria was found in possession of the said items at his Pangani Estate premises. The court further heard that the suspected property belongs to the Municipal Council of Nakuru all valued at Sh. 210, 000.
