Muigai was charged with obtaining money by false pretenses, impersonation and 18 other counts of counterfeiting identity cards.

In the first count, he is accused of obtaining KSh300,000 from  Nicolina Mulama by falsely pretending that he was in a position to process a Kenyan citizenship for her husband, Kelvin Misfield.

The offence was committed on October 24 and 27  2017 at the Nairobi, CBD, jointly with others not in court, police records state.

He faced another count of impersonating a public officer by falsely presenting himself as a National Security Intelligence officer and was in a position to process a citizenship document for the said Misfield.

Identity cards

He had the audacity of making four National Security Intelligence Service Cards (NSIS), a Kenya Bureau of Standard (KEBs) Identification card, six Ethics and Anti-corruption commission (EACC) identity cards, five Immigration Department identity cards and two Office Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) identity cards.

Muigai is  accused of forging the IDs in his name on unknown dates with an intent to deceive.

He denied the charges before Senior Principal Magistrate Martha Mutuku who granted him a bond of Sh 1 million and one surety of a similar amount or alternative cash bail of Sh 500,000.

The matter will be mentioned on  August 17 2018.

Hearing is on  September 26  2018.
