KACC FILES TO JOIN OKEMO, GICHURU EXTRADITION SUIT

JILLO KADIDA, The Star, 10 August 2011

The Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission now wants to come on board in a case in which former utility boss Samuel Gichuru and Nambale MP Chris Okemo are fighting their extradition to the UK to face money laundering charges. KACC has filed an application seeking to be enjoined in the case saying it investigated the matter and as a result it needs to be a party.

Gichuru and Okemo both face an extradition request by the Jersey court for defrauding Kenya Power and Lighting Company and laundering the proceeds to the UK. The warrant for their arrest was issued in April and forwarded to Kenyan authorities by the Interpol. Gichuru and Okemo are facing 53 charges linked to commissions paid by companies for KPLC businesses, mostly between 1999 and 2002, totaling 4.45 million pounds sterling, 790,000 Danish Kronor and US dollars 3.2 million (Kshs 902 million in total).

Last month Gichuru and Okemo went to the High Court to block their extradition arguing that their case should be heard in Kenya where any alleged crimes were committed, rather than in Jersey. "It would be an abdication of its State responsibility for Kenya to surrender its citizens to a foreign country for trial of alleged municipal law offences," they stated.
