NEWS: KABOGO in TROUBLE as Court orders him to surrender KOINANGE’s land TITLE DEED

Friday, the 21st 0f June 2013 - A court has ordered Kiambu Governor, William Kabogo, to hand in the title deed for piece of land he previously bought from the estate of the late Mbiyu Koinange, an influential figure in the Government of the Mzee Jommo Kenyatta.
The title in question is for a 300 acres piece of land in Mau Narok, Nakuru County which Kabogo reportedly bought for Sh 200 million. Justice William Musyoka ordered the Governor to present the said title to the court within seven days.

The title is needed in court to settle the difference between beneficiaries of the late Koinange over the division of his estate. The dispute over the division of the estate has been raging for the last 32 years.

The dispute pits the children and widows of the late Koinange against each other. The estate which comprises properties in Nairobi, Kiambu, Nakuru and Coast has been valued at Sh 3 billion.

Koinange’s first born son David Njuno Mbiyu, now 71, urged the court to recall all titles that have been issued over the pieces of land in dispute;

“I urge this court to recall all the titles in respect to this farm for cancellation,” he said.
Mbiyu has been charged alongside Eddah Wanjiru Mbiyu over the death of Moses ole Mpoe and Parsaaiya ole Kitu - two prominent Maasai land crusaders.
