Nairobi businessman Francis Mburu wants a 36 billion compensation from the government for forcibly occupying his land in Ruaraka.
In the suit filed at High Court, Mburu pegs the market value of the piece of land in Ruaraka at KSh 23 billion.
He further demands KSh 13 billion arising from loss of rental income and the accumulated interest.
He further says the contention over the piece of land has painted him in bad light to the public.
“..Whereas the respondents have the accurate records of the suit property, they have actively been publishing untrue and misleading information that affects my integrity,” says Mburu in the suit papers.
Mburu has in the past come out strongly to defend himself against accusations of corruption. The government through compulsory acquisition acquired 13.5 acres of the land for the two schools in 2017 at a cost of KSh 3.2 billion and paid KSh 1.5 billion only.
Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission has in the past blamed Interior CS Fred Matiang’i for authorizing the KSh 1.5 billion payment to Mburu.
