Official: Ksh. 1.5Bn Plot Near JKIA Is Gachagua’s

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua is the rightful owner of an Sh1.5 billion disputed property in Nairobi, Lands official now says.

Nyandoro David stated in documents filed with the Environment and Lands Court that the title issued to Colombus Limited was irregularly issued because the title for Wamunyoro Investments Limited already existed.

The DP claims, through his lawyer Philip Nyachoti, that the former director of Physical Planning Ohas tampered with land office records in order to deprive him of the property.

He claims that the property is charged to Equity Bank as collateral for various financial facilities granted to him totalling Sh200 million.

The DP was vindicated by Nyandoro’s affidavit, which revealed that the property was transferred to Gachagua on June 18, 2012, for Sh24 million.

According to Nyandoro, the grant was first given to Peter Nduati and Karandi Farm on December 31, 2002.

According to Nyandoro, the grant was first given to Peter Nduati and Karandi Farm on December 31, 2002.

The land registry held at the Nairobi Central Land Registry was then reported missing, prompting a reconstruction of the register.

The property was sold to Wamunyoro for Sh 24 million on June 18, 2012.

Nyandoro claims the property was charged to Equity Bank for Sh200 million a year later.

Unless the court rules otherwise, Nyandoro believes Colombus’ title should be revoked.

Gachagua has maintained that Wamunyoro has always been the legal owner of the disputed property since the case was filed last year, but Ohas and his company tampered with the records at the land’s office in December 2019.
