Iringo has insistently defied arrest

24 February 2014, 15:25 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A Nairobi court has ordered Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo to arrest Interior Permanent Secretary Mutea Iringo over disobedience of court orders.

Iringo is in trouble over a KES 31 million litigation fee owed to a Tanzanian national who has successfully argued a case of wrong imprisonment and damages against the government which go all the way back to 1993.

Mr Alfred Koroso had successfully won a case in which he is expected to be granted the said amount of money but the government has failed to act on the order.

Judge George Odunga thus lodged a warrant of arrest for Iringo and called on the Inspector General of Police Kimaiyo to haul him to court as soon as possible.

  "The respondent should be brought before this court to answer as to why he should not be charged for contempt of court orders, judge Odunga said.

The warrant is the second Iringo has received this month and the fourth that is currently pending, for various offences.

Just this month, judge Odunga ordered Iringo arrested after failing to honour orders in 2011, which directed him, as the accounting officer in the Ministry of Internal Security, to pay money to a businessman, Peter Kamau Mwangi.

The warrant of arrest was issued and the OCPD Central Police Station Patrick Oduma ordered to apprehend Iringo and present him in court.
