Gachagua Describes the Mysteries of Ksh12 Billion Scandal

On Monday, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua disclosed that an anonymous magistrate had spared him from a 50-year prison term. Speaking at the head of the New Year’s festivities at Nyeri Maximum Security Prison, Gachagua said that the previous government had devised a nefarious scheme to seize his Ksh12.4 billion fortune and put him in jail.

He specifically criticized George Kinoti, the previous director of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). Though he was a highly infamous man, we have recently extended forgiveness to him. Gachagua told prisoners, “He made up accusations against me, saying that my Ksh12.4 billion came from criminal actions.

“They put a gun on the magistrate’s head so that he can jail me for 50 years.” Realising that the then Mathira Member of Parliament was being accused falsely, the magistrate decided to postpone the case, according to DP Gachagua.

Gachagua said that the lawsuit was put on hold until after the general election in September 2022 because the judge thought it was a political witch hunt. According to the Deputy President, Kinoti was unable to provide proof of the location from where the Ksh12.4 billion had been taken.

The DP claimed, “He said I should go to jail first so I can appeal later.” Gachagua stated that the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and DCI investigative officers had backed the decision to postpone the case since they were aware that the allegations were fabricated.

DP Rigathi Gachagua stated in November 2023 that a National Police Service corporal had misinterpreted his bank balance, which was the reason behind the Ksh12.4 billion case.”I was living off the interest, Ksh1.9 million, from a microfinance bank where I had put some money eight years ago,” he said at the time. “During that back-and-forth movement, a corporal said I had Ksh800 million coming into my account every year. After eight years, they calculated it, and I was given Ksh12.4 billion.”
