Mwangi Wa Iria scores a double in graft case

Murang’a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria on Wednesday enlisted a twofold win in two cases that were likely frequent him out of office.
In partitioned courts, the High Court in Nairobi controlled the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission from attempting him over cases of swearing a false archive, and suppressed his conviction in a criminal case three years prior.
A judge in 2012 slapped Mr Iria and his co-denounced James Ndungu with a Sh400,000 each for acquiring 400 packs from Ms Esther Wamaitha Njogu by falsification.
The two had paid the fines.
CONVICTION QUASHED
Yet, Lady Justice Ngenye Macharia on Wednesday suppressed that conviction on grounds that there was no adequate confirmation to demonstrate the cases.

It was on the premise of the 2012 conviction that Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko had coordinated EACC to capture and charge Mr Iria for distorting a self-statement shape in the keep running up to 2013 surveys.

He had been blamed for deceiving the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission that had never been indicted and sentenced to six months in jail.

On the other hand, the senator on Wednesday got transitory relief after Lady Justice Mumbi Ngugi banned EACC, Mr Tobiko and Inspector-General of Police Joseph Boinnet from capturing him until the case he has recorded is resolved.

The case will be heard between gatherings on June 8.
