You were conned, Moi tells those claiming Muthaiga land – Nairobi News

Retired president Daniel arap Moi has denied selling a 20.3-acre piece of land in Muthaiga, Nairobi, to businessman George Kiongera.

This adds to the confusion in the already complex battle over the ownership of the property, which is also claimed by the United States International University-Africa and Equity Bank CEO James Mwangi.

The retired president says he has not sold the land, and that Dr Kiongera, Mr Mwangi and the USIU-A were conned.

In fresh filings, Mr Moi has accused Mr Andrew Sunkuli, a brother of his former aide, Mr Julius Sunkuli, and lawyer Samson Omwanza Ombati, of selling the prime land without his consent.

The transfer papers produced in court by Mr Mwangi’s firm, Muthaiga Luxury Homes Ltd, show that he bought the land for Sh300 million in 2012, with Mr Ombati acting on behalf of Mr Moi.

FRAUD

The lawyer and his firm, Omwanza & Nyasimi Company Advocates, are being probed for fraud by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) following a complaint by Mr Mwangi’s Muthaiga Luxury Homes.

“Mr Moi, therefore, claims that he is the proprietor of the parcel of land and continues to be in possession thereof as from the date that he purchased the land up to date. Mr Moi disputes having sold the suit property to Mr Mwangi or to any other person to the exclusion of Mr Mwangi or any other person,” Mr Moi’s lawyer Fred Ngatia says.

The claim has seen Dr Kiongera move for joinder of another law firm, Ochieng, Onyango, Kibet & Ohaga Advocates (OOOK Law). He says OOOK Law partner Jinaro Kibet attested to witnessing Mr Moi sign documents showing he bought the land for Sh500 million.

Dr Kiongera’s lawyer Duncan Okatch says in court papers that Mr Kibet “personally and in his professional capacity as an advocate, did witness and indeed attested to the former President appending his signature to both the agreement of sale and the transfer documents dated January 27, 2016 and June 6, 2016 respectively and indeed in respect to the agreement, he issued a certificate therein so stating that he witnessed the former President append his signature.”

CASES CONSOLIDATED

Dr Kiongera, USIU and Mr Mwangi filed separate suits claiming ownership of the land. The university’s and Dr Kiongera’s suits were consolidated into one.

While Mr Mwangi’s suit was not merged, it was set to be heard at the same time as the consolidated case between February 18 and February 26.

Mr Mwangi says in suit papers filed in court that he bought the 20-acre plot from Mr Moi in February 2012 for Sh300 million, after confirming that the former President legitimately owned it.

Dr Kiongera says he bought the land from Mr Moi in 2016, for Sh500 million through OOOK Law.

Meanwhile, USIU-A says it bought the land from ICEA in 1998. The university says it has a paper trail showing that DPS International bought the land from Mr Moi in 1988, before selling it to ICEA Insurance in 1990. It insists it bought the land from ICEA in 1999 for Sh90 million.

Dr Kiongera has enjoined Ndung’u, Njoroge & Kwatch Advocates and lawyer Paul Ndung’u, who acted for DPS when it allegedly bought the land from Mr Moi in 1988. Mr Ndung’u, author of the Ndung’u Report, had earlier said he witnessed Mr Moi sign the transfer documents.

PROFESSIONAL MISCONDUCT

Dr Kiongera has accused Mr Ndung’u of professional misconduct for failing to disclose that he was a shareholder in DPS International, which is at the centre of the dispute.

The former President insists that he still holds two original title deeds for the disputed property, and that they have never been consolidated into one. Mr Moi also says he has never received any money as payment for the property.

The four-way fight started in August, 2016, when Dr Kiongera tried to develop the land, leading to a fight with USIU-A. Soon after the two parties went to court, Mr Mwangi also emerged and laid claim to the property.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
