What Nairobi Court Did To Pastor Ezekiel This Morning On Case Involving His 35 Frozen Bank Accounts

A Nairobi court today was to rule whether it will vacate the orders that froze over 20 bank accounts of Pastor Ezekiel Odero that are linked with money laundering offences.

The Kilifi-based preacher moved to court on Monday saying the freeze orders obtained by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations had resulted in hardships and catastrophic effects

Milimani Magistrate Ben Mark Ekhupi will rule on the case.

However, today the Nairobi court has suspended ruling on Pastor Ezekiel's application for an interim order on his frozen account.

On Thursday, Odero wanted the court to unfreeze his accounts and allow him to access his funds.

This is after lawyers representing the embattled pastor asked the court to withhold its decision pending a ruling by the High Court in Mombasa on Monday.

He is challenging the court order that barred him and his associates from withdrawing or transferring money for at least 30 days as police conduct investigations.The order was served to managers at Co-operative, NCBA, Equity and KCB banks, the Housing Finance Cooperation and Safaricom.

The lawyers told the court that a similar application had been made before Mombasa magistrate Olga Sewe. A ruling is expected on Monday.

The frozen bank accounts are in the name of Kilifi International School, which has 16 accounts at Co-op and seven at NCBA. The other accounts are at Equity, KCB and HFC, each registered in his name.

A ruling is expected on Monday next week.
