KES 1M bond for title deed forger

06 February 2014, 12:36 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - A man has been charged before a Mombasa law court with intent to forge title deed of a plot valued at KES 350 million.

John Ngure denied all the three counts of fraud before the senior resident magistrate Richard Odenyo.

On first count, it is alleged that between September 3, 1996 and January 29, 2014 at Nyali area in Kisauni sub-County, jointly with others not before court, the accused forged the title deed of a plot measuring 2.75 acres and valued at 350 million, purporting the title deed to be genuine - signed and issued by the registrar of Mombasa- a fact he knew was not true.

It is also alleged that on September 12 and September 18, 2012 jointly with others not before court, Ngure forged an application for postal search for the plot, MN/1/911 CR 9466, purporting it to be genuinely issued by district lands registrar.

He also forged another postal search dated September 18, 2012 for the plot on September 18, 2012.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges and has been released on a bond of KES 1 million with a surety.

The case will be heard on April 11, 2014.

In the same court, five Eritreans were fined KES 15 000 each and a month in prison for being in Kenya illegally.

Keweldo Zakaria, Mathsuala Mahai, Yunamu Yunari, Nguse Abraham and Argae Tekie pleaded guilty to the charges.

Its alleged that on February 3, 2014 at Mainland within Mombasa County, being Eritreans citizens, the five were found present in the country without any document from the immigration department.

The magistrate ruled that the five be fined KES 15 000 and serve at Shimo la Tewa prison for one month and after serving their sentence, they be repatriated back to Eritrea.
