One of the controversial land disputes former President Daniel Arap Moi left behind long started playing out like a star-studded court drama, following the admission into evidence of a set of instructions that his son Gideon gave to his father’s lawyers on a 20-acre parcel, worth billions, in Muthaiga.
Today Paul Ndung’u appeared before Justice Samson Okong’o at Milimani Law Courts a as witness for the disputed land.
Mr. Ndung’u who is believed to have shared some crucial information concerning the said land was taken through two publications by Daily Nation dated July 17 and 18, 2016 respectively.
In the two publications, Ndung’u was quoted saying that he witnessed the late President Moi’s signature in the land document issued to USIU.
Asked whether it was true that he witnessed the signature, Ndung’u said he could not take ownership of the publication as the information must have come from Fred Ngatia who at the time was the Lawyer for the Moi family.
Ndung’u had initially denied any association with USIU, he said the whole report in the Newspaper was a creation of Daily Nation and Mr. Ngatia.
Ndung’u has however maintained that the transfer of documents in relation to the land was by all means executed by the late President Moi in his capacity as the president of the republic of Kenya at the time.
Many Years after US-based businessman George Kiongera’s Maestro Connections Health Systems Limited, the United States International University-Africa (USIU-A) and Equity CEO James Mwangi’s Muthaiga Luxury Homes filed cases over ownership of the land, the junior Moi tried to clarify the status of the land to Ngatia & Associates.
While the Moi patriarch was still alive, his son had already largely taken over the running of his father’s affairs and this included defending lawsuits brought against the retired President.
The senior Moi had hired Ngatia & Associates to defend him in the three suits.
