Televangelist David Gakuyo grilled at DCI headquarters over Fraud

By Antynet Ford

Ekeza Sacco founder and Televangelist David Kariuki Gakuyo was today taken to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters for grilling preparation for prosecution.

Gakuyo is expected to be charged of fraud among others.

The case is among 12 that the DCI had opened in relation to the transactions that Gakuyo had with some locals in Kiambu.

“We had 12 files each with 25 complaints. Only one file has come back with consent to charge him and that is why he was held.” An  officer aware of the developments told Corporatewatch.co.ke.

He is expected in court on Thursday to face the charges.

The televangelist may face more charges when the other files return with consent to charge, the officer said.

Gakuyo was earlier today detained by police as he flew out of the country at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

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 what case I have. Right now I’m at the DCI airport.” He said.

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