Police raid MP's Nairobi home

26 March 2015, 16:52 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Police have raided the home of Kuresoi MP Zakayo Cheruiyot in what has been termed as an investigation on where and how he acquired his property.

The four Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC officers together with two police officers arrived at Cheruiyot's Lavington home at juts past 7 AM Thursday and demanded documentation to show if the house belonged to him.

After consulting his lawyers, Cheruiyot presented the paperwork to the police and after a few minutes of interrogation, the officers left.

It was not clear whether the raid was linked to the ongoing Anglo Leasing case in which Cheruiyot is a part of or other matters.

" I simply do not know what is going on," he told News24 of the raid

" To this time I have no idea if it was linked to the Anglo Leasing or someone powerful has a hand in it, he added.

He was adamant that the house belongs to him.

" I have lived here since the year 2000 and I have valid documentation to prove so. I do not understand it but also did not fight it because I know and the police now know the truth," he added.

Cheruiyot together with other key bigwigs are facing criminal charges pertaining to the swindling of the government of up-to KES 6 billion in fake security deals and tenders.
