Mike Sonko in court over sale of Ksh 29M land
Nairobi Senator Gidion Mbuvi alias Mike Sonko was on Wednesday in court over the apparent illegal sale of a piece of land in Bamburi, Mombasa worth Ksh 29 million.
Sonko was summoned to appear in court in March this year after two brothers, Hitesh Pravin Dave and Rajesh Pravin Davem, linked him to the illegal sale of the piece of land in 2009 before he was elected MP for Makadara.
Appearing before Chief Magistrate Julius Nang’ea, Mr Sonko admitted to have acted as a real estate agent in the sale of the land for which he was paid Ksh 870,000 as commission by the supposed land owner Afzal Ahmedali Shah.
Investigators had claimed that Sonko used the names Mike Munga and Mike Musa, as a land estate agent for Mr Shah to sell the land belonging to Tecaflex Ltd to the two brothers, who are flower farmers from Kajiado.
Tecaflex reportedly bought the land from Bamburi Cement.
Shah is also facing three counts of fraud including the making of fake title deed in 2005, presenting forged document to a city lawyer and swindling the two brothers Ksh 29 million between July 31 and September 17, 2009.
