Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama will face abuse of office and land-related corruption charges, DPP Noordin Haji has said.
The legislator, Haji noted, will be arraigned in court on Monday to face uttering a document with intent to deceive, obtaining registration of land by false pretenses, knowingly misleading an investigator, conspiracy to defraud and making a document without authority.
“The outcome of investigations revealed that Arama in collusion with officers in the Nakuru lands registry unlawfully and deceitfully caused illegal registration and issuance of a certificate of lease in relation to plot no.6/95 to an alleged individual who has disowned the purported sale agreement entered between Samuel Arama and the alleged individual person,” DPP said.
The said plot was hatched in August 2015.
The MP was apprehended by EACC officers on Friday night alongside his lawyer at an entertainment joint in Nakuru town.
The duo is being held at Nakuru Railways Police Station, his brother Charles Arama has disclosed.
