A former Kenya Medical Research Institute (Kemri) managing director Davy Koech jailed in 2021 is among 37 people pardoned by President William Ruto following the recommendation of the advisory on the power of mercy.

Dr Koech was sent to jail for six years for corruptly acquiring Sh19.3 million when he was the institution’s boss in 2006.

Attorney General Justin Muturi ratified the pardon in a gazette notice dated July 21, 2023.

Koech had in the past appealed the ruling by Magistrate Victor Wakumile that was pronounced in September 2021, arguing that it was flawed.

Magistrate Wakumile found Koech guilty of three counts of fraudulent acquisition of public property and was fined Sh19.6 million or a six-year jail term.

The first charge read that Koech irregularly acquired Sh800,000 public property from the research institution on August 17, 2006.

The 72-year-old failed in his attempt for a review of the decision last year when Justice Esther Maina dismissed his application.

In a Kenya gazette notice dated July 21, Attorney General Justin Muturi published the names of 37 offenders pardoned by President Ruto on the recommendation of the Advisory Committee on the Power of Mercy.

He faced additional charges alleging that he used his position to corruptly transfer funds from the Vector Biological and Control Research (VBCR) account to himself.

When he was the Managing Director, he was accused of transferring Ksh. 19.3 million from the institution's bank accounts to his personal accounts. The funds had been designated for the Kisumu Center for Disease Control.

In the gazette notice, Ruto also pardoned 2,944 petty offenders and 2,117 long-term offenders.
