BY WAHOME THUKU
Finger of God Church official Quincy Timberlake has been charged with being in possession of forged South African Passport.
Timberlake alias Quincy Zuma Wambitta alias Sammy Koffi Sighn was arraigned before Nairobi Chief Magistrate Gilbert Mutembei also charged with misleading an immigration officer.
Timberlake, the declared husband to former television presenter Ester Adongo Arunga, was accused of keeping and using the forged passport on March 10, 2008 at Komarocks Estate in Nairobi.
He was also accused of having misled an immigrations officer, Mosoti Osongo, in Kisumu on April 16, 2007 by telling him that he had been issued with a Kenyan passport without surrendering another one issued to him on January 30, 2006.
Timberlake denied the charges and was released on Sh50,000 cash bail. The case will be heard on June 18.
Timberlake was released last month after being held in remand prison for weeks. He had been denied bail in a case in which he and others including his wife Esther are charged with being members of an illegal society, the Finger of God.
Mutembei had then denied him bail because he was still being held over an immigration-related case filed at Makadara law courts.
It was while in remand that he is said to have married Arunga.
