Police are reported to have found more than Ksh 2 Million fake money and money printing machines with Tharaka-Nithi deputy governor Murithi Mati at his residence in Meru as reported by various news outlets.

They also recovered about Ksh 900,000 in an enveloped stashed at his wife’s private office.

More cash was however found in a different location as he is said to have asked a chief by the name Benson Ngoci to hold on to the money for him.

According to Tuko the police and EACC detectives raided the politician after they were tipped by a member of public that the Jubilee politician was dealing with ‘wash wash’ money business.

The EACC detectives did not find anything that could be used against him, but, a Range Rover that was parked at his home parking.

Governor Muriithi mati however said that the fancy ride was purchased a while back and that it was cheaper than the price of a Toyota Vitz as reported by Citizen Digital.

This comes two weeks after the deputy governor reported that his body guard, Josphat Kipyegon, robbed him 3.5 million.
