Muhoro accused of misusing his office

04 October 2016, 19:25

Nakuru - Nakuru County Flying squad boss Samuel Barongo has sued the Director of Criminal Investigations, Ndegwa Muhoro for authorizing his transfer and demotion to Loiyangalani, Samburu County as the deputy criminal investigations officer.

In his court documents, Barongo accused Muhoro of misusing his office and overstepping his mandate by transferring him, a role that should have been taken by the National Police Service Commission.

Barongo’s transfer came after he was linked to a high profile case where he was investigating four police officers believed to have participated in a KES 70million theft at Salgaa area along the Nakuru-Eldoret highway on July 15 where mobile phones, computer accessories and garments were stolen from a trailer on transit.

The CID boss noted that Muhoro erred by transferring him before he completed three years in his current station as stipulated by the laws governing civil servants.

However Muhoro has defended himself through his lawyer Nguyo Wachira claiming that the CID boss was allegedly colluding with suspects believed to have taken part in the theft, adding that he released impounded vehicles used in the theft without opening any inquiry files records as required.

Appearing before High Court Judge Janet Mulwa on Tuesday, Wachira said the move by the DCI headquarters was reached upon after allegations of colluding with theft suspects and soliciting for bribes was reported against Barongo.

He further added that being the director of the criminal investigations, he discharged his functions and powers of the DCI boss as per the law and there was no ill will.
