Magistrate in trouble for attempting to sell Moi's land

12 July 2016, 19:00

Nairobi - Police are looking for a former magistrate and lawyer accused of fraudulently attempting to sell a tea estate which belongs to retired President Daniel Moi.

This after a Nakuru court issued a warrant of arrest against James Duke Nyamweya whom is accused of receiving of Sh 2,500,000 from an investor while pretending to be in a position to sell the land at Kiptangich tea estates.

Nyamweya, a practicing lawyer in the Eldoret Law courts is out on a police cash bail of Sh 100,000 and was to appear before Nakuru trial court to answer to fraud charges before  him.

Through his lawyer Francis Kibet, he told the court that Nyamweya was unable to attend the court due to the abrupt death of his mother on Tuesday and had traveled to mourn with the rest of the family urging the court to adjourn the matter to a later date.

The court heard that the accused person was issued with summons to attend court and that he was much aware of the case he faces.

The prosecution argued that the lawyer ought to present authentic documents about the bereavement of the accused’s mother citing that the defense side may have made up the allegation.

Chief Magistrate David Kemei in his ruling on Tuesday ordered that the accused person be arrested and the cash bail be forfeited until the matter is heard and determined.

The matter was slated for mention on July 19 for directions.
