An anti-corruption court in Nairobi has ordered the arrest of former Meru Governor Peter Munya after he failed to appear in court to testify in the Arror and Kimwarer corruption scandals.
Magistrate Eunice Nyutu ordered the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to arrest and present the former Agriculture Minister in court.
Initially, the court had given Munya 90 minutes to appear in court to testify, but he did not present himself.
Police officers attached to the Nairobi Area have launched a manhunt for Munya after he failed to turn up for the court hearing.
Munya who is under investigation had been ordered to appear in court at 11:15 a.m. to testify in the Ksh63 billion Arror and Kimwaer dam corruption case against former Treasury CS Henry Rotich.
“I order Munya to present himself in court by 11:15 a.m. His warrant of arrest still stands,” Magistrate Nyutu ordered.
While appearing before the anti-corruption court, the investigation officer Douglas Chege disclosed that DCI bosses were unable to effect the previous warrant of arrest since Munya was no where to be found.
