Home Bay Member of Parliament George Peter Opondo Kaluma was on Thursday charged
afresh with obtaining over Sh 300,000 from a businessman by false pretenses over disputed land.
The MP appeared before Nairobi chief magistrate Hannah Ndung’u, jointly charged with lawyer John Wamiti Njagi and businesswoman Florence Seyanoi Kibera alias Dorothy Seanoi Moschion with conspiracy to defraud.
Kaluma was initially charged alone last year, but the prosecution later consolidated the two cases since the facts and witnesses are the same.
In the first count, Kaluma, Njagi and Kibera are charged that on diverse dates between January 16 and February 29, 2012 at unknown place within Nairobi County, jointly conspired with intent to defraud by
offering to subdivide and sell by registration of agreement of sale at the Lands Ministry, a one acre portion of land parcel No.5892/22 situated at Ololua Ridge, Karen to Deborah Achieng Aduda and Rene John Dierkx.
Kaluma is accused of obtaining Sh 313,000 from businessman Constantine George Sphikas by falsely pretending that he was in position to finalize processing and registration at the Lands ministry a lease agreement for the lease of land parcel No 5892/22 not encumbered by any mortgage in Ololua Ridge, Karen.
Kibera was separately accused of obtaining Sh 6 million from Constantine George Sphikas by false pretences.
Wamiti was charged with obtaining Sh 25,000 from Deborah Achieng Aduda and Rene John Dierkx as legal fees by false pretending that his was in position to prepare, finalize and register at the Lands ministry an agreement of sale capable of registration for the purchase of a one acre portion of land to be subdivided from land parcel No.5892/22. He is further accused of obtaining Sh 3 million by false pretences.
The magistrate directed the case to be heard on 26 of June.
