The Central Rift Matatus Association chairman Steve Muli today spent close to three hours recording statements with the police over an alleged fake court order that called for a return of matatus to the central business district.

Mr Muli was accompanied to Central Police Station by Nakuru Town Service Matatu Association Chairman Francis Njoroge alias Njosh and his 3NS SACCO counterpart Mr Peter Wambugu following a summon and not an arrest as earlier stated.

Yesterday, Mr Muli addressed journalists and issued them with copies of the said fake order that authorized matatus to be allowed back to their former stages in the CBD.

Senior Resident Magistrate Daisy Mosse said she had on Wednesday only temporarily restrained the County from constructing a new matatu stage forthwith pending inter-parte hearing on Wednesday.

The Magistrate explained that item five of the court order that gave room for a return to CBD did not originate from her court and was inserted citing its different font face and type.

A reliable source at the station states that Mr Muli, the director of Prestige Shuttles, maintained that he was duped by a petitioner that the orders were genuine and from the court.

The petitioner, Nakuru County Youth and Governance chairman Mr Daniel Kimani had argued that the working environment in the new matatu stages was pathetic and wanted two matatus per SACCO allowed back into the CBD.

Governor Lee while condemning the move urged the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to investigate the matter and bring those culpable to book. Those found culpable for the offences of forgery and making a document without authority face three years imprisonment.
