Former DCI Kinoti on The Spot Over Gachagua's Ksh 7.3 Billion Case

An explosive affidavit from a police officer who was engaged in accusing the second in command is expected to cause the corruption case against deputy president Rigathi Gachagua to be dismissed.

The officers who detained Gachagua were forced to file charges against him by the former director of criminal investigations George Kinoti, according to Superintendent of Police Kuria Obadia, who works out of the DCI's main office.

Obadiah, who oversaw investigations against the former Mathira lawmaker who had a falling-out with former president Uhuru Kenyatta, served as the chief of the serious crimes branch.

According to Obadiah's declaration, Kinoti forced him to make recommendations that ultimately led to Gachagua being held in jail.

He claims he was given stringent deadlines. It was challenging for him to conduct adequate and thorough investigations into the subject given the parameters under which he was required to work and produce his conclusions.

He claims that kinoti gave them instructions to make recommendations so that the accused might be charged while the investigations were ongoing.

When they were charged in court, the investigations came to an end, and the detectives began to make accusations about fraud, money laundering, misuse of power, and conflicts of interest. The witness testimony phase of the trial was never conducted.
