Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru is set to lose her home anytime after the high court gave a greenlight to developers to auction the multi million property located at the up-market Kihingo village in Kitisuru.
The court heard that the developers, James Ndungu and Robert Marekia are yet to pay Frame Consultants the sum of 4.5 million Kenya shillings because governor Anne Waiguru has not yet finished paying the house.
Justice Alfred Mabeya while issuing the ruling ordered that Frame Consultants could either ask the governor to pay the amount in question or attach the house.
“In this regard, Frame Consultants can either attach or auction the property to recover its debt,” ruled Justice Mabeya as quoted by Daily Nation.
Anne Waiguru reportedly bought the property in 2015 at a cost of 80 million and only paid half of the amount.
In the meantime, Sonko News reported how former Presidential aspirant Martha Karua wanted auctioneers to go for Gatundu South legislator Moses Kuria’s personal properties as ordered by the courts in 2017.
The Narc Kenya Party Leader sent the auctioneers to recover goods worth 6.5 million from the legislator. Karua wanted the auctioneers to go after Kuria’s microwave, a home theatre, television stand, sofa sets, a carpet, two motor vehicles- a Land Cruiser and a Honda, amongst other items.
Karua’s move came after a high court in 2017 ordered Kuria to pay a fine of 6.5 million Kenya shillings for defaming her. The high court ruled that it was defamatory for Kuria to allege that Karua paid witnesses to testify against William Ruto when he was facing a criminal case at the International Criminal Court(ICC).
The statements were made by Kuria at a prayer rally in Bungoma in 2015. However, Karua claimed that those utterances damaged her good reputation as a mother, advocate and as a business woman.
