Dennis Itumbi sues Interior CS Fred Matiangi over Ruaraka Land Saga

Published

Former State House digital communications director Dennis Itumbi has filed an application in court seeking approval to mount a private criminal prosecution against Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi over the controversial Ksh 1.5 billion Ruaraka land.

He filed the application at Nairobi Chief Magistrates court.

Here is the application.

Itumbi wants to be granted authority for a private prosecution citing unwillingness by the DPP to do so.

In a 193 page application, the former digital communications at state house cited a decision by a three bench judge of the high court who had faulted the move by the National Lands Commission which advised the education ministry to proceed with the acquisition of a 13.77-acre parcel in Ruaraka.

Dennis Itumbi seeks to have Matiangi who was by then the Education Cabinet secretary, prosecuted.

He wants Matiangi prosecuted for abuse of office, willful failure to comply with the law on management of public funds, financial misconduct and conspiracy to defraud.
