Kimunya arrested, to appear in court Monday

14 March 2014, 21:29 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Former cabinet minister and member of parliament Amos Kimunya has been arrested by anti-corruption personnel and will likely appear in court Monday over an irregular land deal.

Kimunya was earlier Friday ordered prosecuted by the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP over a land deal in which he and others are accused over the illegal allocation of public land.

He was picked up by anti-corruption police Friday evening at a Nairobi hotel and processed in what officials said was a move to have him in court at the earliest.

" Honourable Kimunya is in our custody and is being processed. Indicators are that he will be availed in court Monday, the Ethics and Anti Corruption Authority spokesman Yassin Aila confirmed.

A statement from the DPP’s office said Kimunya should be charged together with two other people namely, Mrs. Lilian Njenga, formerly Director of Land Adjudication and Mr. Junghae Wainaina, the Chairman of the Board of M/S Midlands Limited.

It is alleged that Kimunya, whilst he was the Minister of Lands, caused the said land to be allocated to M/S Midlands Ltd, a company in which he was a director without the consent of the Ministry of Agriculture.

“The charges are in connection with a 25-acre piece of public land located in Njabini, Nyandarua County, which was part of a 75-acre land belonging to the Ministry of Agriculture reserved for potatoes seed multiplication project,” Tobiko said in the statement.

The investigation was carried out by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) and the DPP said that there was sufficient evidence to charge the three due to public interest.

However, the DPP was quick to add that the three are presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial. “As such, it would be inappropriate for him to comment on the matter further,” said the DPP.
