A former presidential hopeful has been charged with stealing NTV journalist Kenneth Mijungu’s car.

Justus Juma is accused of stealing the vehicle valued at Sh5.6 million with another suspect still at large in Nairobi on June 13.

In a second count, the accused is charged with conspiracy to commit a felony.

Juma wanted to vie for president in 2017 but his papers were rejected by IEBC.

He denied the charges before chief magistrate Martha Mutuku and was released on a Sh800,000 cash bail. 

Apart from being a news anchor, Mijungu runs a company called Execar-tive CarHire which imports cars and machinery.

About two months ago the news anchor appealed to the public to help him trace a stolen car.

The anchor took to his Twitter account to announce that the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado VX had been stolen.

The matter will be mentioned on October 23.
