Kimunya released on KES 1 million cash bail

17 March 2014, 13:53 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Former Lands minister Amos Muhinga Kimunya was arraigned in court and denied charges of abuse of office where it is alleged that he fraudulently obtained 24 hectares of land worth KES 60 million in Nyandarua County.

Kimunya together with his co-accused Lilian Njenga, an officer in the Ministry of Lands, and Junghae Wainaina appeared before acting chief magistrate, Doreen Mulekyo.

Mentioning alleged charges facing Kimunya, Mulekyo stated that as the senior-most public servant at the Ministry of Lands he involved in fraudulent acquisition of land, engaged in breach of trust by allocating public property to a private investor, Midland Company and failed to disclose that he was among the Company’s board of the directors.

The magistrate also mentioned that because Kimunya involved in lawful ownership of land and used his position as the Lands minister to allocate Midland land, he faces the charges of failing to protect public property among other charges.

Kimunya with his two co-accused persons pleaded not guilty to the mentioned charges and the magistrate ordered them to deposit cash bail of KES 1 million or bond of KES 2 to retain their freedom.

The case hearing is slated on April 8, 2014.
