DCI announces manhunt for Joe Mwangi, ex Wendy Waeni manager

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has announced a manhunt for Joe Mwangi - the controversial former manager to Kenyan teen gymnast Wendy Waeni.

The DCI indicated that Mwangi was wanted in connection with forgery of a letter involving a Cabinet Secretary.

He was asked to surrender to the authorities with immediate effect.

"Mr Joseph Mwangi NDUTA alias Joe whose photos appear below is #Wanted by @DCI_Kenya Detectives 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.

Mbele is Waeni's mother who recently came out to reveal that Mwangi had intimidated her whenever she asked for her daughter's share of earnings.

The case a few days after an investigation was launched by the DCI's children's unit following a complaint by Waeni who told the press that Mwangi had duped her while managing her career.

The former manager also complicated his case after he exposed details of Waeni's private life, prompting a warning from a prosecutor in the DPP's office.
