Pimp My Ride hit, again

Published

on

The business complex where Simmers Restaurant once stood was demolished for a second time on Thursday night.

Witnesses said that Nairobi county bulldozers descended on the premises a few minutes after 1am on Thursday.

They claimed that the demolition was supervised by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, who did not leave his car.

“Sonko was in his car watching as the bulldozers demolished everything in the middle of the night,” said one of the witnesses who had been guarding the business.

He added that a owner of an M-Pesa shop lost a safe but he was not sure if it had any valuables.

A hydraulic vehicle alignment machine was also destroyed in the process.

PLANNED DEMOLITIONS

The demolition comes after a Nairobi magistrate declined to stop the planned demolitions.

Pimp My Ride East Africa had rushed to court on Tuesday arguing that a notice given to him by the County Government of Nairobi was expiring on July 9.

The owner, Peter Nderitu claims to have all the approvals, including building permits from the county government, and that he has been occupying the premises on the strength of a lease between him and the landlord.

He says all was well until July 2 when he received a seven-day notice stating that the construction was illegal.

In May, the garage owner was caught unawares after it was demolished on grounds that it is an illegal structure with several stalls built in the plot also affected.

The garage, Pimp My Ride, was opened soon after Simmers Restaurant was demolished a year ago.

State seeks to seize luxury cars from gold scam suspect, Jared Otieno

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

A case filed by the Asset Recovery Agency (ASA) wants to reposes the vehicles that Jared Otieno has on the basis that he could not have bought the vehicles legally since he does not have a legitimate source of income. 

“The respondent is part of an international syndicate which has been in existence since 2012, fraudulently obtaining from investors monies on the pretense that they have precious metals including gold,” the document filed before the Anti-Corruption Court read in part.

It continues: “The respondent has no source of legitimate income and has been filing nil returns with the Kenya Revenue Authority since 2014 to date, which is the period the said motor vehicles were acquired.”

The vehicles in question are Porsche Panamera GTS and a Bentley Continental GT.

An investigator, Jeremiah Matipei, believes Jared has hidden the ownership of one of the cars by registering it under Yugni Holdings Ltd.

A search at the registry shows that Otieno owns a fifty percent stake at the company while the other partners, Mary Anyango and John Kaisa, owns twenty-five percent each. 

“The transactions depict a scheme of money laundering meant to conceal, hide and disguise the source and usage of funds contrary to the provisions of the Proceeds of Crime and Anti-Money Laundering Act,” said Mr Matipei.

According to the assets recovery body the vehicles were paid for in installments. They are valued at Ksh45 million for the Bentley and Ksh 30 million for the Porsche.

Stop insulting Uhuru, Waiguru tells Tangatanga MPs

Published

on

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has criticised Deputy President William Ruto’s allies in Mount Kenya region.

The governor on Tuesday accused politicians allied to Tangatanga group of insulting President Uhuru Kenyatta.

She said the legislators claimed that President Kenyatta was using the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) to cling to power after his term ends in 2022.

She told Kirinyaga County residents to reject leaders who insult the Head of State.

She said: “Who told the MPs opposed to the BBI that the President is interested in getting a political seat after his term of office expires in 2022?”

Ms Waiguru said President Kenyatta had not shown his intention to cling to power after his term in office ends in 2022.

She claimed that the Tangatanga MPs were out to humiliate the President and divide Mt Kenya region to ensure the BBI flops.

“If a dog barks at you, then you will definitely know who its owner is,” she said.

She warned that the President was unhappy and would soon ‘divorce’ those who attack him.

“There is no way the President can continue working with members of Jubilee (Party) who abuse him and frustrate (his) efforts to have BBI succeed,” she said.

However, Ms Waiguru expressed confidence that the BBI will succeed.

Ms Waiguru, who is coordinating BBI in Mount Kenya, vowed to continue drumming support for BBI despite opposition by Tangatanga group.

The region, she added, would benefit immensely if the BBI is implemented.

“The BBI will ensure that more resources are allocated to improve coffee, tea, rice and dairy farming in the region. There will also be employment for our youths,” she said as she flagged off a garbage collection exercise in Kagio town.

She cautioned that the region risks being locked out of national leadership in the next government should the leaders remain disunited.

“If the (Mt Kenya) leaders are not careful and continue travelling in different buses, we shall not be in the government and other regions whose leaders are united in support of BBI will benefit,” she said.

She accused former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri of incompetence.

“Following the sacking of Mr Kiunjuri, the prices of milk have increased, the President is not sparing inefficient government officials,” she said.

Kirinyaga Deputy Governor Peter Ndambiri called on the residents to support the BBI.

Majority Leader Kamau Murango told off local leaders who undermine Governor Waiguru’s leadership.
