James Orengo to be summoned over Lamu land deals

26 August 2014, 10:29 Ken Wekesa

Lamu - Criminal Investigation Director, Ndegwa Muhoro on Monday said there is a possibility that former Lands Minister, James Orengo and PS Ms Dorothy Angote, will be summoned over Lamu land wrangles.

Muhoro said they are compiling evidence that will determine whether the two will be probed over the issuance of 500 000 acres of land in Lamu.

“We are compiling evidence that will inform us who will be summoned next, be it the former PS or Lands minister,” said Muhoro.

The former Lands minister has denied publicly his involvement in the illegal land allocation in Lamu and blamed Jubilee leaders for the ongoing wrangles.

The Director of CID has revealed that 60 directors of 22 companies under investigation over alleged irregular acquisition of land in Lamu have recorded statement with the joint team investigating the matter.

Speaking during the opening of annual East African Police Chiefs Association meeting in Mombasa, Muhoro said the directors have recorded their statements at CID Headquarters in Nairobi.

The team has also questioned former Lands commissioner, Zablon Mabea.

Muhoro is spearheading the process, with the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) and the National Land Commission carrying out separate probes.

He said a team of experts and investigators have compiled the evidence they have gathered and will seek legal action against those implicated.

“We have recovered a number of exhibits that we will use to frame a recommendation before the files are sent to the office of the DPP for further directions,” said Muhoro.

Deputy Inspector of Police, Grace Kaindi also revealed that investigations into those behind the funding of attacks in Lamu and Mandera are progressing well.

She also said that police have been deployed in Mandera following skirmishes that started in Ethiopia and spilled over into Kenyan borders where she confirmed three people were injured and one person killed.

Kaindi also said that investigations have commenced to establish whether there are political link to the chaos.
