A law firm has sued Kenya Football Federation chairman Samson Nyamweya for allegedly failing to refund Sh6.5 million paid to his company as deposit for the sale of two parcels of land.
In the suit documents, Nyamweya has acknowledged the debt in writing and has previously instructed his banker to pay the money to the plaintiff but later on cancelled the directive. Bokin Holdings, a company associated with Nyamweya, acquired the two plots from Amusement Garden Ltd owned by ??? Kangwana.
Kangwana then deposited the money before the execution of the agreement but on October 2009, Bokin informed Kangwana of its intention to terminate the agreement as it had discovered that the land had not been degazetted and that the government would not allow Bolkin to purchase the two parcels of land from Amusement Gardens.
It is alleged that Nyamweya then requested for more time to refund the deposited amount and later in November 2009, he directed his bankers to make payments of Sh6.5 million to the plaintiff through his firm but no payment was received. Plaintiff claims that even after a notice to sue, they have neglected to pay him his monies.
Monarch group limited owned by Kangwana and Bolkins Holdings have been enjoined in the suit since the agreement was entered between the two companies though the payment of the consideration was made to Nyamweya directly. The case will be heard on June 12.
