Newsline: Kenya’s Senior Officials Accused in Japan Embassy Case Claim Cover-Up

Three former senior government officials have accused the Director of Public Prosecutions and the anti-graft commission of framing them over the Tokyo embassy land scandal. Former Foreign Affairs PS Thuita Mwangi, former ambassador to Libya Anthony Muchiri and former Chargé d’Affaires in Tokyo Allan Mburu said conspiracy to defraud the government charges against them were trumped up and used by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to cover up the real corruption cartels. Through lawyers Paul Muite and Wilfred Nderitu, they said a sensible investigator or prosecutor would have concluded that there was no charge against them as the country got value for money in buying the embassy. The court will rule on March 21 whether the accused have a case to answer.
