NGO boss who squandared sick child’s money to remain in custody

26 August 2015, 21:31 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - A Non Governmental Organization (NGO) founder who is accused of misusing money meant for treatment of a 15-months-old child, has been arraigned in a Kigumo Court, Murang’a County.

Joseph Wanjau, who is founder of Hope International Organization, was charged that on diverse dates between March 27 and July 21 this year, being an agent of Fedilis Medication Fund, he stole KES 2 720 269 which was contributed to help baby Fedilis Muthoni go for treatment in Canada.

Wanjau, who was accompanied by his lawyer Alex Muchemi, denied the charges before Senior Resident Magistrate Agnes Mwangi.

The prosecution applied for the accused to be detained at Makuyu Police Station for seven days so as to allow police to complete investigations, saying that if Wanjau is released, he might interfere with the witnesses.

The case Investigating Officer, Joseph Kioko told the court that they are investigating a car alleged to have been bought with the said money and thus releasing Wanjau on bond may interfere with the documents of the car.

Lawyer Muchemi pleaded with the court to have his client released on bond saying the accused has no threat to the witnesses and that he runs an NGO which caters for disabled and thus his presence in the organization is highly needed.

The Magistrate refuted the defense counsel’s plea to release Wanjau on bond and ordered that he be detained in custody until September 1 when his case will be mentioned.

Wanjau was arrested in Nairobi last week after he went missing when the family of the child sought help to have their child taken to Canada for treatment.
