Inquest over Embu County speaker dissapearance continues

21 May 2014, 21:53 Millicent Kawii

Nairobi - The wife of Embu Speaker Justus Kariuki Mate yesterday moved to court seeking to compel the Director of Criminal Investigations and the Inspector General of Police to produce him.

Caroline Wangari wants her husband produced in court as she believes he is in police custody.

Wangari wants the court to summon the Criminal investigations, Mr David Kimaiyo and the Starehe District Criminal Investigating Officer to confirm whether Mr Kariuki is in police custody as well an explanation of his arrest.

She further believes her husband was arrested on Monday evening when he was last seen at Nairobi’s Utalii Hotel within Starehe division.

The inquest comes in the midst of a power struggle between the Embu MCA and the Governor Martin Wambora.

The MCA has twice impeached Wambora over mismanagement of county affairs but there has been no direct link between the two cases.

" There is no link at the moment. Nothing has been decided and investigations are ongoing, a police source said.

Wangari claims to have made appropriate inquiries at the Director of Criminal investigations and the district criminal investigating officer of Starehe but has not been able to access her husband.

The police are yet to officially comment on the allegations with the case to be heard starting Friday.
