World record holder David Rudisha involved in land tussle with 92-year old

Rudisha wants the old lady moved out of the plot of land he bought back in 2015.

Rudisha , who is the world record holder for the 800m is seeking to have the court compel Ms Nashuru Muriango to move out of a 5.3-acre plot of land he claims he bought in September 23, 2015.

However, while testifying before a Narok court on Wednesday, Ms Muriango denied selling the plot of land to the middle-distance runner. The Kilgoris born woman stated that she never received money from the 800m champion or entered into any agreement with him over the sale of the land.

Ms Muriango told Justice Kullow Mohamed that her wish was to be buried on the land and she does not have anywhere else to go.

“I have not sold my land to anybody. I live there and only death will make me leave the land, and I have instructed my children that I will be buried there,” she said in court.

Rudisha argued that his brother, Mr Benson Rudisha, and the granny’s grandson Franklin Naiguran helped him strike the land deal with in 2015.

Mr Rudisha said he deposited Sh1.3 million( $13,000) in an account belonging to Mr Naiguran’s wife, Ms Silvia Naiguran, after his brother represented him in signing a sale agreement prepared by Mr Banjamin Musyoki, a clerk at Jumba and Company Advocates, in Kilgoris Town.

The three mentioned in the deal have been accused of fraud and are now facing criminal charges at the Kilgoris Law Courts in connection to the same case.

Mr Musyoki will be summoned by the court to explain further on who signed the agreement after the woman’s lawyers argued that it was fraudulent.
