On Friday, 18 September, former Kiambu County Governor, Ferdinand Waititu was accused of selling 10 acres of land to more than 190 people along Kangundo Road, Nairobi, while he was still a Member of Parliament.
The former governor defended himself against the allegations, but instructed his lawyers not to testify or prosecute the case.
The land referred to in the case was owned by a real estate firm. The firm was directed to recover the land from Waititu along with the critical documents.
“I am confident that the complainant has proven his argument against the defendants and that he is entitled to the prayers sought in the case. The defendants shall vacate within 90 days failure to which the plaintiff is at liberty to apply for eviction orders,” the judge ruled.
Waititu was further accused of invasion of the land after it had been acquired by the real estate company from a private firm of approximately Ksh30 million. He was also said to have made threats and harassed the real estate firm.
Waititu defended himself, however, by accusing the private firm of selling the land to the real estate company behind his back. He claimed to have bought the land at Ksh15 million.
