Agnes Kagure, a businessman and one of Governor Sonko’s nominees for Nairobi County deputy governor position failed to turn up in court on October 22 to defend ownership of a disputed land in Karen and another one in Upper Hill.
Her lawyer Michael Osundwa said Kagure and businessman Thomas Mutaha were not intending to call any witnesses.
In the case which has been ongoing since 2016, Kagure claims Roger Robson sold the Karen land to her in 2011 for Sh100 million in cash before he died in 2012.
Kagure’s claims that Guy Spencer Elms, a Kenyan-based lawyer, forged Robson’s Will was disputed by Ann Malulu who told the court that the said Will was prepared by Archer and Wilcock advocates and witnessed by two secretaries.
Further, Mohammed Khan told the court that the property could not have been conveyed to Kagure as it was still mortgaged to the bank at the time Roger Robson died. Khan further explained that he would have been instructed by the bank to prepare any re-conveyance of the mortgage in the event of a sale.
Thomas Mutaha’s claims he is the director of Plovers Haunt limited after he given for free all shares in the said company was challenged by John Masese.
The witness said the share transfer document in court was forged, and that Thomas Mutaha could not have acquired shares in Plovers Haunt limited, the company that rightfully owns the Upper Hill land.
The hearing is still ongoing.
