Migori governor Okoth Obado’s bodyguard John Chacha alias Mwita Moses Mogaya who was arrested on Monday over fake academic papers has been released on Sh1 million bail.

He is accused of allegedly falsifying academic documents and using them to secure employment as an Administration Police officer.

“The pre-trial will be on October 12,” the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission wrote on its Twitter handle.

The commission’s officers arrested Chacha at a hotel opposite Milimani Law Courts.


“@EACCKenya received a complaint, conducted investigations and established that the subject used certificates belonging to one Mr John Chacha Nyamohanga to get entry to the Administration Police Service in 2006.”

He was arrested just minutes before his boss pleaded not guilty to a murder charge against Rongo University student Sharon Otieno.
