NAKURU, KENYA: A Nakuru micro-finance institution branch manager has admitted that one of their senior officers had connections with Joshua Waiganjo.
However, it has emerged that the same officer left the bank to allegedly join the police force weeks after the bungled Baragoi police raid in which more than 40 police officers were killed by bandits at Suguta valley in Samburu.
Faulu Kenya Nakuru branch manager Michael Njiru Runji confirmed that Gerald Maina, who was a credit officer, accompanied the security team to Baragoi for a fact-finding mission but could not explain what his role was in security matters.
Instead, Runji who said Maina had already left the bank, referred The Standard to the institution’s public image officer for all information regarding the saga.
“I am aware the story is of national interest and all information concerning the implicated staff is available for release. It is paramount you get the full information from our head office because anything you get should be correct and proper,” said the manager.
