Monday, January 2, 2023 -Asset Recovery Agency ARA now wants Government to refund Deputy President a whopping sh 202 Million frozen in bank accounts.
According to the agency, all the evidences provided previously were not full proof and cannot continue holding water in the court of law.
That the Director of Criminal Investigations DCI produced highly misleading evidence for political reasons.
In the fresh affidavit, the graft institution states that all the millions paid to Mr. Gachagua were done in good faith for the goods and services supplied to government – both county and national.
“ARA is satisfied that the amount is not proceeds of crime as was initially perceived and pray that the money be released to the appellant,” partly read the affidavit.
It further found out that Gachagua’s business entities fairly applied for the tenders just like other bidders and won.
“There were no complaints or defaults raised or issued against the said contractor during or after the execution of the contract,” the agency defended.
This new twist now throws the former DCI boss George Kinoti under the bus for misleading the court on the conduct of the DP.
Among the entities Gachagua traded with include County Government of Bungoma sh 35 million and Kenya Power sh 10 million through his Wamunyoro Investment Limited.
