Uhuru’s cousin claims Sh1bn land being sold by Banda Homes

Published

on

A member of the Kenyatta family has kicked off a storm over ownership of prime land on which a developer is putting up a Sh1 billion estate for sale.

Uhuru Kenyatta’s cousin, Kathleen Kihanya, is claiming Banda Homes had misled potential buyers on the land, an assertion the investors strongly disputed.

Banda Homes is developing 120 units of three-bedroomed bungalows on a 20-acre piece of land about three kilometers from the Thika Superhighway, which it has been advertising.

“This land belongs to my family and we are now in the process of subdivision and issuance of separate titles,” Ms Kihanya said in a statement.

“Banda purports to have an agreement to buy part of this land, which is not possible because there is no title. They have erected a sale sign on the land and they are collecting deposits from people. My family had no idea,” she said.

Ms Kihanya warned buyers to conduct due diligence before purchasing the property.

“They are selling land that they don’t have yet. Are they disclosing to the public the true facts? How can they honestly sell something they don’t have?” she posed.

Banda Homes director Paul Nderitu, however, dismissed Ms Kihanya’s claims as “malicious” maintaining that the developer had purchased the land from another Kenyatta kin, Kamau Ngengi.

“We have indeed purchased land about 20 acres hived off from a larger portion that neighbours the Kihanya family land,” said Mr Ndiritu in an interview.

“Ms Kihanya’s claims are just malicious,” he added.

Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has revealed how he got to own a new Mercedes Benz while still in campus.

Sakaa revealed that after joining Univeristy of Nairobi he got into student politics which afforded him privileges such as nice rooms and being able to set up businesses around the school.

Luckily, while he was the chairman of SONU, he landed a role in former President Mwai Kibaki’s administration.

“The first time I met Kibaki was in 2006 after the referendum. He asked to hear my dreams about the country and I started working with him.

“We established the Vijana na Kibaki initiative and started mobilising in universities and that is how I bought my first car a green Mercedes Benz,” he explained.

In the run up to the 2007 election, he took a lead role in rallying support for the presidential secretariat and during the 2008 post-election crisis.

Sakaja’s resolve to see a solution found resulted in him addressing President Mwai Kibaki’s Cabinet at the age of 22.

At the age of 24, Sakaja had written a section of the 2010 constitution.

When he came up with the formula for the delimitation of constituencies.

Sakaja had been consulted by Nancy Gitau, who was State House’s political advisor.

She asked him for his views on the said topic and he responded that he would think about it and advice.

When the team that was working on the draft laws retreated to Naivasha, he represented PNU whereas ODM had brought a very senior professor.

Kibaki and the rest of the team were so impressed by the 24-year-old that they chose Sakaja’s proposal over the professor’s.

Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) singer Zuhura Kopa popularly known as Zuchu has denied claims that she is in a relationship with Diamond Platnumz.

Speaking during an interview on Wasafi FM, Zuchu described the rumours as baseless adding that if there was a relationship with Diamond, there would have been proof.

“Kwanza ukiangalia ndani ya WCB hakuwezi kuwa na maneno kama hayo kwa sababu hakuna kielelezo na hio story haina muendelezo.

“Tunajua watu walivyo wafuataliaji, trust me kama ningekuwa na any inappropriate relationship na boss, kipo kitu kingeonesha Ushahidi lakini watu wamebase kwenye vielelezo vya promotion ambayo kama ukingalia wasanii wote duniani wa kike wanaofanya vizuri management zao ziliwekeza kweli kweli,”said Zuchu.

She added that instead of people appreciating the WCB boss for investing in a young talents, they have focused on negative things about him.

Zuchu further said that Diamond Platnumz has never disrespected her in any way, and that he is more of a big brother to her.

“Kwa hivyo mi naona badala ya kumpongeza mtu kama boss kwa kuwekeza kwa msichana mdogo kama mimi watu wamnataka kutumia ile nafasi kuweka negativity which is not right. Boss wangu hajawai kunivunjia heshima. I’m saying this with all my heart. He’s a brother and a brother indeed. He has never been inappropriate, hajawahi,” added Zuchu.

He wondered why Kenya has not yet legalized marijuana yet it can help reduce pain for cancer patients.

“Why is it that we in Kenya are still stuck with the old ways of saying this is an illegal drug, this is crazy. My host is telling me that this is hemp that is used for construction, making ropes but really, it actually smells like weed… but that’s not the issue, if this is good either to reduce the pain of cancer patients why not legalize it? What is so bad about it.

He further said that if it is not good for Kenyans then no country in the world should plant it.

“We only live once. I think from our brief moments from our mothers’ wombs to our tombs, we need to come and settle this out. If this weed is good for us, lets legalize it. If its not good then let’s not allow other people in world to plant it.
