The Directorate of Criminal Investigations is going after officials from the the Kenya African National Union (KANU) party. The senior officials allegedly forged Gideon Moi’s signature in a property scandal.
Reports allege that George Wainaina, the Kiambu branch chairman and three other people forged the signature of the Baringo Senator.
The four did so with an aim of selling properties in Kiambu. However,George Wainaina denied the allegations.
There has been a series of cases where people are seeking to repossess property. Former senior members of the party allegedly grabbed the property.
The party owns prime properties in Nyeri, Trans Nzoia, Isiolo, and Nakuru counties. Unfortunately, the properties are in contention.
George Wainaina allegedly conspired with other people to defraud the KANU party two prime properties in Kiambu. The two properties are valued at 100 million.
A fake letter that placed the prime properties under the stewardship of Wainaina’s colleagues surfaced. At the time, the property was operating as a car wash. The letter had Moi’s name and signature.
“Further to our minutes dated 21st February, 2017, regarding sale of party properties, we resolve that the party sells some plots within Kiambu county. This move will aid the national secretariat and the Kiambu branch in running their operations. They will also perform their respective mandates effectively,” the letter reads in part.
“Among the properties we will sell are Township block11/52 and Kiambu Township block 11/53,” it adds.
When confronted with the contents of the fake letter, Wainaina claimed that he had never laid eyes on the letter before then.
Unfortunately, this is not Wainaina’s first scandal. The DPP linked him in the City Hall scandal where individuals had defrauded City Hall 68 million Kenyan Shillings. Wainaina appeared in court alongside former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero.
Other than his involvement in the scandal, Wainaina had also served as former Governor Kidero’s chief of staff.
