A prison warder who was arrested in connection with the assault and extortion of Kirinyaga Deputy Governor has been charged for a different case.

Dennis Mugambi, who was based at Nyandarua prisons, was on Thursday charged with robbery with violence in a Thika Court.

Together with two others; David Kinyua Gakuya and Boniface Mbuyu Wachanga, Mugambi is accused of robbing Pastor Jonathan Musau Mulwa of St. John’s ACK Church, Pumwani in Nairobi last year.

The three are said to have robbed the man of God at Kamaki’s area along the Eastern Bypass.

Mbuyu and Kinyua were arrested by police in Ruiru last year and charged over the alleged robbery while Mugambi remained on the loose and was arrested after Kirinyaga Deputy Governor Peter Ndambiri’s explicit video saga.

Before Senior Resident Magistrate Grace Omodho, State prosecution applied for a merger of Mugambi’s case with that of the two suspects who have been out on Ksh.1 million bond.

Mbuyu, who was present, told the court that his co-accused, David Kinyua Gakuya was unwell and was receiving treatment at Ngurubani Hospital in Mwea.

The Prosecution objected the excuse and appealed to the court to grant a warrant of arrest for Kinyua as documents to confirm he was unwell were not presented before the court.

The court issued the warrant of arrest warning that Kinyua must appear in court for the next mention.

A mention on consolidation of the case will be done on May 16, 2018.

The prison warder, who is the prime suspect in Peter Ndambiri’s case, is facing a similar robbery with violence charge at Kandara law courts in Murang’a for the Deputy Governor’s assault.
