The controversial Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru is ‘facing’ eviction from her luxurious home in Kitisuru, Nairobi over what is reported as rent arrears totalling to Sh44.5 million.
Waiguru who became a tycoon after looting from the NYS coffers when she served as the Devolution secretary has rushed to the court to seek protection from the alleged property owner, Kihingo Village Ltd.
The realtor claims that the governor must pay them the said amount or vacate the Sh80 million house after she failed to meet the deal signed in September 2015.
Waiguru argues that she paid Sh40 million for the property in cash and the agreement was that KCB Bank was to offer an additional Sh40 million as mortgage.
Some criminals use loans and mortgages as a cover for laundering looted funds, and their repayment can be used to mix illegitimate with legitimate funds.
In this case, Kihingo Village has denied receiving any payment from the defendant claiming that the tycoon governor is just a mere tenant and not a homeowner in what looks like a calculated move to clean looted funds.
Waiguru has been facing graft charges that pushed the members of the Kirinyaga county assembly to threaten her with impeachment but she hired ODM lawmakers to ‘save herself’ at the senate.
Kihingo claims that Waiguru has not paid rent for the five years she has lived in the spacious home and now risks asset seizure by Chardor Auctioneers.
“The applicant is apprehensive that unless the orders sought herein are granted, the consequences of the eviction will be dire as the suit property is her residential home where she resides with her family. The damage will be irreparable,” Waiguru told the court.
