Mt Kenya billionaire chased out of Muthaiga Golf Club for urinating in public

Behaving badly?

The exclusive Muthaiga Country Club kicked out Stephen Mbugua Mwagiru, whose family land hosts the multibillion Tatu City in Kiambu, over gross violation of its rules.

Mwagiru has spent the past six years in the corridors of justice seeking to overturn Muthaiga Club’s decision.

The high-end member’s club told the court that in April 2012, Mwagiru showed up at their restaurant at midnight and demanded for food.

He was, however, informed that the restaurant was closed but the heavily intoxicated businessman was reported to have responded with insults.

After the disturbance, the club demanded their wealthy member to resign or his membership would be terminated.

The termination was eventually actualised in 2013 after which Mwagiru moved to the High Court to challenge the process of removing him – having been a member since 2004.

He initially lost at the High Court and later proceeded to the Court of Appeal where his case has now been dismissed.

A three-judge bench at the Court of Appeal directed the Kiambu businessman to pay the costs of the suit, both in the Appeal and the High Court.

Muthaiga Club is one of the most exclusive membership clubs and boasts of prominent members including former President Mwai Kibaki who is a long serving patron of the golf club.
