DPP turns his eye on hotly contested land

DPP Noordin Haji with DCI George Kinoti

The Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji has directed investigators to expedite a probe into an ownership dispute surrounding Ksh10 billion land in Kiambu County.

In a letter addressed to the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Haji asked to be provided with the status of the investigations after a city lawyer made claims of fraud.

Deputy DPP Jacob Ondari wrote on behalf of Haji on the 19th February stating: “I refer to the above captioned matter and our letter dated 9th August 2018. To date the DPP has not received any response or the police investigation file."

Fast probe

He added: "The DPP has now received a further complaint touching on the subject matter. Could we have the police investigations without delay.”

The land is claimed by the estate of former provincial commissioner late John Godhard Mburu who was the director of Miaraho limited.

Miaraho limited wrote a second letter on the 11th of February 2019 to DPP Noordin Haji protesting the failure to solve the dispute.

Hefty payments

Individuals purporting to be directors of Miaraho Ltd entered into a sale agreement with directors of Hydro Developers Ltd on the land on 27th June 2011 as Ksh200 million.

A law firm associated with Paul Mwaniki Gachoka, a commissioner at the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, Mwaniki Gachoka and Co Advocates acted for the same process.

In 2011, the said directors of Miaraho Ltd were allegedly paid Ksh201, 933,250 by the KeNHA, as part of the land was acquired for the construction of Western Bypass.
