Despite winning the case, Assets and Recovery Agency lawyer Jennifer Gatwiri and Cpl Fredrick Muiruki have failed to hand over the cash back, 18 million and the 10 motor vehicles.
Kinyua says his client proved to all four courts how he acquired his assets, the 10 motor vehicles worth cash 30millions and the cash 18millions through his Uganga (witchcraft job).
The BMW car Magira was gifted by a South African client who bought him the car while the cash 18millions was part of cash 50millions one of his clients paid him after he solved a problem that had haunted him for long.
Kinyua says that his client fears for his life as he has received threats cautioning to stop persueing recovery of his 10 motor vehicles and the cash Ksh 18millions.
" As late as in 2020, when my client had been set free of all charges, an asset and recovery agency went and placed a caveat on Toyota Kenya asking Toyota Kenya to surrender the original log book of the said car to the agency without any court order.
We have many people arrested,arraigned in court and jailed for committing economic crimes which include trafficking drugs, anima trophies and corruption.
The authority has never confiscated their assets.
Why was only my client who adhered to the law arrested, charged and acquitted?"
