UNDER SIEGE: US-based firm wants Simon Gicharu arrested and jailed for Intellectual Property-Theft.
Dr. Simon N. Gicharu, the owner of Mount Kenya University, is being accused of fraud and intellectual property-theft by a US-based company.
While in Kenya, the theft of ideas is the order of the day, other countries take the crime very seriously, and intellectual property has become a core revenue stream for the taxman.
We believe that this case has merit and it will be extremely detrimental for Mr. Gicharu’s MKU to be blacklisted by law-enforcement plus other international bodies concerned with University education.

Yves Tchouta and XL Squad are represented by the Nsahlai Law Firm, particularly attorney Emmanuel Nsahlai, and by Sara Eslami.
A copy of the complaint is attached at the tail-end of this article.
In an effort to conceal the truth of his scheme to defraud and use Mr. Tchouta’s intellectual properties and relationships for their own personal gain, the attorneys for Dr. Gicharu and MKU requested that his videotaped deposition transcript be sealed.
