State House denials on stolen car fail to bear fruit

08 September 2014, 13:12 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Five persons have been charged in a Nairobi court for the theft of a presidential escort vehicle.

The five have been accused of stealing a BMW vehicle that belongs to State House and is part of president Uhuru Kenyatta's escort team.

The five include a Ugandan national Robert Mande, who it has emerged was the one who was caught with the vehicle in Tororo Uganda when the car was recovered last week.

The suspects denied dishonestly handling and undertaking the disposal of the motor vehicle, with registration number KAW 479Y as confirmed by State House.

Each suspect was released on a KES 5 million bond.

State House previously denied the vehicle belonged to the presidential escort but it has since emerged that the vehicle is indeed one that belongs to the State House team.

Spokesman Manoah Esipisu had tried hard to state that it was a normal police vehicle but since then there has been little denial from State House.

And questions have also been asked as to how and why the vehicle was being driven at night by Chief Inspector David Machui in Ruaka where it was stolen.

Kenyans especially on social media have been highly critical of efforts to cover up the identity and placement of the BMW 7 series vehicle.

 And security expert Oscar Nguyi has also been puzzled by the denials.

" It is interesting because they denied and then as time has gone by, it has emerged even through the court process that it is a State House vehicle.

" Kenyans do not like being lied to and especially about matters security. It shows that the government is hiding something ", he added.

Undercover police have also confirmed that the vehicle is State House registered and thus Kenyans will wait to see what happens of the judicial process.
