Court stops ar­rest of fraud sus­pect in Ki­tui MP case

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Judiciary -

The High Court has stopped po­lice from ar­rest­ing and pros­e­cut­ing a busi­ness­man ac­cused of ob­tain­ing Sh10 mil­lion from Ki­tui South MP Rachael Kaki Nya­mai by pre­tence.

Mil­i­mani chief mag­is­trate Daniel Ogembo was told James Ki­man­thi Mbaluka had ob­tained or­ders from the High Court bar­ring his prose­cu­tion. His lawyer asked the court to de­fer the plea to De­cem­ber 16. Mbaluka, who is out on Sh50,000 po­lice bond, moved to the High Court yes­ter­day, stop­ping the DPP from pros­e­cut­ing him over the al­leged crim­i­nal of­fence.
