Kenya: Evans Monari's Father Grilled Over Fraud Allegations

Three city businessmen were on Monday grilled by police over alleged forging of documents and attempted transfer of shares belonging to one of their co-directors.

George Monari Ogeto, Ezekiel Ombati and James Nyambane were questioned by detectives in Kilimani for attempting to defraud Emily Kwamboka her shares from the Savings Tea Brokers Limited, a company they co-founded in 2002. Monari Ogeto is the father of renown city lawyer Evans Monari.

According to Emily's statement with the police, she discovered that her co-directors had written letters to the registrar of companies claiming she had resigned when she had not. She made the discovery of two forged letters on May 3, 2012 after writing to the Registrar of Companies wanting to know the status of their company. She also came across affidavit which indiacted that she had authorized the transfer of her shares to the three directors.

After making the discoveries, Emily reported the matter at Kilimani police station prompting the summoning of the three co-directors. She went to Kilimani Police Station yesterday to finalize her statement with the police. Detectives are expected to arraign the three men in court after completing investigations. Samples of the documents presented to the police by the complainant were taken to the document examiner for further investigations.

According to the police, the two might be charged with making documents without authority and for attempting to transfer Emily's shares unlawfully. The three are out of police custody on cash bail as they await further directions from the office of the director of public prosecution.
