Kidero loses illegally acquired property

Court takes away multi-million property

Justice SM Kibunja of the Environment and Land Division ruled that the former governor obtained the piece of land in Korando area without following procedures.

Kidero was sued by a Kisumu resident, Peter Ochola, who successfully convinced the court that he was the rightful owner of the land.

Ochola told the court that he had bought the portion of land from one Peter Angira in 2005. He paid the full purchase price and a sale agreement was made but he got hospitalised after being involved in an accident.

He added that while recovering, he learnt that part of the land he had purchased had been sold off to a Mr Muriithi Mbui who subsequently sold it to Kidero.

The court ruled in favour of Ochola and ordered the land's title to be reversed and put

"The court finds that the defendant’s acquisition of the title was not procedural, regular and legally done," Justice Kibunja stated.
