DCI now pursuing Prophet Owuor over Ksh1.5 billion property

Scheme to steal

Police launch probe Prophet Owuor's church

Repentance and Holiness Ministry preacher prophet David Owuor is now under investigation over Dove Apartments.

The probe on the controversial preacher happened after the family of one woman Jayne Muthoni locked horns with the self-proclaimed prophet.

According to Ms Muthoni's family, prophet Owuor forcefully took over the property worth Ksh1.5 billion in an elaborate scheme.

Monies in question

Detectives are trying to unravel the mystery of the account which has been receiving rent deposits from the apartments.

Since the family has been engaged in a tussle with Owuor, sleuths will as well as try to establish whether there have been withdrawals from the account and by whom.

Additionally, the police are looking at a suspected fraud amounting to Ksh428,400,000.

Brainwashing

Prophet Owuor was accused by the family of coercing Ms Muthoni to appoint Lilly Njage, a follower of the ‘prophet’, as a co-director in Shaba Investments Limited that owns and manages the property.

In her defence, Ms Muthoni told journalists that she noticed Ms Njagi was forgetful and took over her finances to keep her from being exploited. 

The family further claimed that Owuor has been receiving millions of shillings in monthly rent payments from the apartments located in Westlands and Riverside Drive.

Also of interest to detectives is the sale of 108 acres of her land in Thika that was sold in 2011 at a cost of Ksh850,770,000.
