Rogue Lawyer Jack Bigambo charged with forging EACC documents
A Nairobi lawyer was on Tuesday charged with forging the official stamp and signature of an EACC lawyer and using the forged stamp to fraudulently secure court orders against EACC.
Jack Bikambo appeared before Milimani senior principal magistrate Martha Nanzushi and denied four counts of charges.
The lawyer is accused that on February 10, 2022, at Bigambo & Bigambo advocates office in Westlands, with intent to deceive, embossed a false stamp impression in the name of Grace Wambui advocate and commissioner of oaths on a supporting affidavit.
It was for the purpose of commissioning by purporting it to be a genuine stamp impression of Wambui.
He was charged with a second count that on the same dates in his Westlands office, he forged a signature on the supporting affidavit in the name of Wambui.
He was further charged that on February 11 he fraudulently uttered forged electronic records through Anti-corruption and economic crime division purporting them to be genuine miscellaneous applications commissioned by Wambui.
The court further heard that on March 9, 2022, at EACC police station, Bikambo informed I.P Abdinoor Diba a police officer that the miscellaneous application of Milimani was commissioned by Magua& Mbatha advocates information he knew to be false.
The said information was said to have caused the officer to believe which he ought not to have done.
The accused pleaded for lenient bond terms and requested to be supplied with witness statements from the prosecution.
He was released on a cash bail of Sh100,000. The case will be mentioned after two weeks.
