Joe Mwangi released after 5 days behind bars

Gymnast Wendy Waeni’s former manager Joe Mwangi has been released after spending five nights behind bars.

Mwangi was freed on a Sh100, 000 cash bail after denying forging a letter from Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i threatening the young acrobat’s mother Ms Magdalene.

His arrested followed an order by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) asking him to surrender but he failed to do that.

He was apprehended days later, after DCI launched a Manhunt for him in connection with the forgery of a letter purporting to be from Matiang’i.

Arrest

Joe was arrested on Tuesday last week after members of the public assisted DCI operatives to track his whereabouts and was detained for five days as the Director of Public Prosecution concluded investigations into the claims.

“Mr Joseph Mwangi NDUTA alias Joe is in our custody. He will be charged appropriately once necessary police process is complete. We thank everyone that shared information on his whereabouts,” read a tweet from DCI.

Detectives had requested Joe Mwangi to surrender to the authorities with immediate effect which he failed to do.

"Mr Joseph Mwangi NDUTA alias Joe whose photos appear below is #Wanted by @DCI_KenyaDetectives in connection with the Forgery of a Letter purporting to be from a Cabinet Secretary threatening the complainant- Magdalene Mbele of some consequences," the DCI said in a statement.
