Rogue Ekeza Sacco founder David Kariuki Ngare arrested , linked to fraud

Controversial televangelist and Ekeza Sacco founder David Kariuki Ngare, alias Gakuyo has been detained by police as he flew out of the country on Wednesday.

He was detained at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

The motive of the arrest, however, remains unknown.

Gakuyo has, however, blamed unknown political leaders for trying to revenge on him.

He said in a video his trip was cut short by detectives who apprehended him at the airport.

“They say I cannot leave the country. I’m at JKIA. I just think there is some revenge somewhere. I’m happy I might get an opportunity to see the judge and be told on what case I have. Right now I’m at the DCI airport,” Gakuyo says in the video.

Gakuyo has been on police radar over allegations of embezzling over Sh1 billion from members of his Ekeza Sacco.

He, however, negotiated a deal to pay back the money to the claimants. Police said he remains under probe over the issue.
