A senior DCI officer who was said to have had sexual advances and did business with an NYS suspect from the Ngirita family, Julius Muhia, has been forced to step aside as investigations gather steam.

Details have emerged that the Officer at the Kiambu Road-based DCI headquarters could be relieved of his duties and dispatched to Kiganjo for further training, and later leave Nairobi office for a field office.

Chief Inspector of Police Julius Muia swore an affidavit that saw 46 suspects denied bail and remanded by Anti-Corruption court magistrate Douglas Ogoti. He was supposed to have disqualified himself from the probe, sources say.

Jeremiah claimed that Mr Muia had been his business partner and that they had traded with NYS since 2014 through his company Jerricathy Enterprises.

He added in the sworn affidavit that they have been supplying hardware material and renovation facilities to the NYS in Gilgil.

Ngirita says in the affidavit that he has been depositing money into Muia's Cooperative Bank account. He produced banking slips to support the affidavit.

Meanwhile, 113 bank accounts have been frozen in 13 local lenders for six months in an effort to give the State to complete the investigations. One of the many accounts affected is that of Anne Ngirita, Lucy Ngirita and Phyllis Ngirita.
