Last week, Pauline Jepketer Cherop a widow from Eldoret claimed that the Businessman popularly Known as Buzeki, allegedly conned her out from a piece of land worth Sh200milion located in Nairobi.

The land had been left by her deceased husband and Buzeki had then expressed interest in buying the land and even gave her a cheque of Sh12 million as down payment.

“Buzeki then gave me cheques totaling Sh12 million, and I gave out the title deed to the land. A week later, my bank notified me that all the cheques had bounced,” a teary Jepketer said.

Before adding, “I am old and tired. I cry every night, wishing my husband was around to deal with this little boy,”

Buzeki who is running as an independent candidate against incumbent Jackson Mandago has now distanced himself from the allegations, saying he does not own the 2.3 hectare Garden Estate property.

Adding that he cherishes honesty after all this is what his business success is based on.

"I support hundreds of youths nationally by paying their fees. I am God-fearing," he said.

The young billionaire has even received backing from Jepketer’s three sons - Ronald Kiptanui, Daniel Kipkorir and Donald Kipruto who all have exonerated Buzeki.

“Our mother is being misused by cartels which have been misleading and conning her. Now they are using her to damage the name of Buzeki who is our cousin and has been very helpful to this family. This is pure malice against him," said Kiptanui.

What is strange though is where they were when their mother made the accusations against Buzeki.

Despite accusing their mother of being used by the so called cartels the sons failed to reveal their names.

Added that it is even their family that owes the businessman Sh43 million, a part-payment for the land, and other sums given to assist the family and not the other way round

The sons further added that their mother is not listed as an administrator of the property owned by three parties, not just her family.

In their mothers allegations she claimed Buzeki’s lawyers, Kipkenda and Company Advocates refused to hand over the titled deed yet the same lawyers have now been listed as the family lawyers.

Kipkenda and Company Advocates, have written to Cherop stating that the three parties, including her late husband, owned equal shares of the land.

“The owners sold the land to Bunoil through an agreement on May 14, 2012 but the agreement was frustrated by the then City Council of Nairobi which claimed the land belonged to Garden Estate Primary School," the firm said.

The said land has also been listed in the Ndungu report as grabbed public property.
