NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 3 – Tycoon Deepak Kamani, his father Chamanlal Kamani and his brother Rashmi now say they are ready to face their accusers in court.
Their lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi says his clients are innocent and there was nothing for them to answer as far as the contracts were concerned.
He denied earlier reports that the Kamanis had moved to court to block the arrests saying there was no need to block what was non-existent.
“How can you stop something that doesn’t exist? My client will take the plea when everyone else is taking a plea. This was a contract.”
He said Deepak was due in Kenya on Wednesday and was ready to take a plea with any other accused persons.
“There is no case. We will face them and they will surrender because there is no case,” he told Capital FM News.
He said there was no need for drama after EACC detectives camped at Kamani’s Kyuna residence in Nairobi seeking to arrest him.
“Why should they camp at his house? There is no need for drama,” he said.
Apart from the three Kamani’s others expected to face charges over the saga are ex-ministers David Mwiraria and Chris Obure, Joseph Magari, Dave Mwangi, Francis Chahonyo, Sammy Kyungu, Samuel Bundotich, Bradley Birkenfeld and Brian Mills.
Firms to be hauled to court are Infotalent Limited, Sound Days Corporation and Apex Finance Corporation.
