Businessman to sue government over KES 8 million debts

20 August 2016, 08:18 Joseph Njung'eh

Murang'a - A businessman has threatened to sue Murang’a County government for allegedly failing to pay him debts amounting to KES 8.4 million.

George Wainaina said the County government owes him rental for the building housing Kenneth Matiba Hospital in Kenol town.

He said the arrears are for seven and half months starting February 2016.

Through a letter to Governor Mwangi wa Iria dated August 17, he said that he will be moving to court to claim his dues and particularly repossess the building.

He also divulged that the Governor approached him in person to lease the building.

Wainaina further said that the county government has never settled the rent on time which in turn has put him at logger heads with the bank where he acquired a loan facility to build the premise.

“I cannot trust the county government again and I will seek orders for an auction. Earlier efforts to recover KES 7.2 million which was in arrears for two quarters in 2015 were thwarted by the county government administration when the county lawyers argued that it is hard to auction a government,” he said.

Wainanina lamented that his advocates have been frustrated forcing him to make personal contact with the Governor, whom he says does not respond positively.

He is now preparing to seek court orders to compel the county government to settle dues for the entire lease period running for five years since August 1, 2014.
