Why Pastor Kanyari wants freeze order on his bank account lifted

By MAUREEN KAKAH December 28th, 2016 1 min read

A city pastor who was uncovered in an exposé two years ago for conducting fake miracles, has now moved to court seeking to lift an order freezing his personal bank account.

Pastor Victor Kanyari Mwangi has sued the CID Headquarters and a Milimani Magistrate Court.

He claims that an investigating officer with CID obtained the freeze order on November 21.

In his case documents filed on December 22, he argues that since then, no evidence has been furnished so far that confirms the account is being used for purposes of laundering proceeds of crime.


According to the CID, they received complaints from the public about fake miracles and are investigating him on obtaining money by false pretense.

The clergyman is an account holder with Cooperative Bank, River Road branch.

The Magistrate court had ordered the bank’s manager to also avail certain key documents to enable the investigations to be done, besides the freeze order.

The case will be heard on Thursday by High Court judge Stella Mutuku.
