A court in Ngong, Kajiado County, has taken significant steps in a fraud case involving a former land registrar and three others.

Principal Magistrate A.O. Makau issued a warrant of arrest against Ms. Grace Wairimu Mumo, the fourth accused, after she failed to appear in court to take a plea. Meanwhile, Mr. John Ngugi Wairimu, the third accused, has been ordered to appear in court on Thursday, April 25, to enter a plea.

Businessman Erick Mwangi Ngigi and Huth Peter Henry, the first and second accused respectively, pleaded not guilty to various charges against them.

Mr. Ngigi was released on a bond of Sh5 million with a surety of similar amount or an alternative cash bail of Sh3 million, while Mr. Henry was released on a bond of Sh200,000 or a cash bail of Sh100,000.

According to the charge sheet, the four are accused of jointly conspiring to manipulate the market price of a parcel of land in Kajiado/Loodariak/4453 through a fraudulent valuation report between November 20, 2015, and January 14, 2016, in Nairobi City County.

Additionally, they are accused of executing a title deed purporting it to be genuine, and the first accused, Mr. Ngigi, is alleged to have obtained a loan of Sh52 million from NIC Bank by falsely representing the value of the land parcel as collateral.

The case is set to be mentioned on Thursday, April 25, for further instructions and plea taking for the 3rd and 4th accused persons.
