Controversial televangelist David Kariuki Ngare, alias Gakuyo has now moved to court seeking courts protection from police arrest.

In the court papers filed before the Milimani Law Courts, Gakuyo wants the court to temporarily stop Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and Directorate of Criminal Investigations boss George Kinoti from investigating and arresting him over the alleged missing cash.

Gakuyo, who is accused of allegedly embezzling over Ksh.1 billion from members of his Ekeza Sacco wants the court to bar the police from arresting him.

He claims that Matiang’i directed the Inspector General of Police to investigate and charge him for embezzlement of members cash which he says is illegal.

“For some time now there has been prolonged litigation between the Commissioner of Cooperative against me, Ekeza Sacco and Gakuyo Real estate which I believe had a political motive,” said Gakuyo.

Gakuyo now says that he is afraid that he will not get a fair trial in court and that the police are acting under pressure from the CS and his political opponents who are also inciting the public against him.

“I believe that CS Matiang’i is unconstitutionally interfering with police independence in investigating and directing them to arrest and prosecute me before magistrates,” he claimed.

He further argues that the DCI is not independent in his matter because he received instruction from Matiang’i and is working on them.

He says that he went to DCI alongside his lawyers after the CS called for his arrest and he was told that there were no complaints against him.

However, a day later he saw that DCI asking members of the public who lost money at Ekeza to appear at their headquarters and record statements.
