‘God is watching’:Ekeza sacco members cry after being teargassed for listening to DCI call

David Ngari, a televangelist and owner of Ekeza, is alleged to have used his reputation as a man of the cloth to lure followers into pumping billions of shillings into the sacco.

A report earlier indicated that he has irregularly transferred Sh 1.5 billion from the troubled Savings and Credit Co-operative Society to his personal account.

“To further our investigations into the matter, the general public who have been defrauded in the scheme and hail from Nairobi and Kiambu counties are advised to report to the DCI headquarters along Kiambu road on March 18, 2019 at 9.am” reads part of the letter.

However things went south after police ended up lobbing tear gas canisters to disperse protesting reportedly over 60,000 members of Ekeza Sacco.

“We closed all our business and came here (at DCI HQ) to record statements only to be turned away” an angry member said.

“We came here armed with all documents, and now we are being told that the people from Nairobi should plan and come on another day to record statements, this is unfair. Our children are not going to school, we want Interior CS Fred Matiang’í to address us since we have lost faith in DCI  ” she added.

They mocked the Member of parliament of the area over their absence insinuating that they had also been given loans.
