Controversial city pastor Victor Kanyari is suing the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and a Milimani Magistrate court for freezing his personal bank account.
Kanyari, who was exposed over fake miracles on his congregation in exchange for money in 2013, wants the High Court to reverse the orders freezing the said personal account.
According to the pastor, freeze orders obtained by an investigating CID officer on November 21 were ‘unreasonably given.’
In his affidavit filed on December 22, Kanyari argues that the freeze oders of the account at Cooperative Bank, River Road branch, have caused him ‘irreparable loss and suffering.’
Investigators while obtaining the orders told the court that they suspect Kanyari was using the account which holds millions of shillings to launder proceeds of crime.
An investigator identified as Boaz Ogaga said they received complaints from members of the public who accused Kanyari of using fake miracles to dupe them.
However, Kanyari argues that the police did not give court enough proof to show that he committed any offence to warrant the issuance of the orders to investigate and freeze his accounts.
The case will be heard today by High Court judge Stella Mutuku.
