Clergy cons Mwea ACK church of Kshs. 2 million

Police yesterday arrested a clergyman suspected of swindling Mwea ACK Town Church of over Sh 2m, meant for the procurement of church seats.

On February 9, 2023, the Mwea ACK church leadership contracted Apostle Blessed Gilbert Kariuki and his spouse to deliver 410 seats to the church on or before April 10, 2023. However, things turned out that the man of the cloth neither showed up, nor delivered the items as per the agreement.

As reported by the church faithful at Wang’uru Police station, the man of the cloth swindled them of their money before disappearing. Efforts to reach him turned futile, prompting the church vicar to report to the police. Police immediately swung into action and successfully apprehended the suspect.

Yesterday, Kariuki was arraigned at Wanguru law courts, where he answered to charges of obtaining money by false pretenses.
