Jimi Wanjigi, wife taken to court in Sh400m land row


Businessman Jimi Wanjigi has been dragged to court over a Sh400 million piece of land in Westlands, Nairobi.

City resident Cissy Kalunde Musembi accuses Mr Wanjigi and his wife Irene of attempting to acquire the land illegally.

Ms Musembi wants the Environment and Land Court to stop Aureum Ltd – a firm associated with the pair – from acquiring and selling the 0.818-acre piece at the junction of General Mathenge and Peponi roads.

“I am an innocent third-party buyer of the property. I face threats and egregious prejudice by Mr Wanjigi and his wife who hold parallel titles over the property,” Ms Musembi says in the notice of motion filed last week.


She went to court even though the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) is looking into the ownership row.
