Following a ruling by the High Court, Mr Wanjigi has been freed without charges. This ruling came after Mr Wanjigi claimed to have been fraudulently acquired the land on which his house in Westlands is built.
Wanjigi’s prime property measures 0.3 hectares. In 2009, Kenya’s DCI recommended that Wanjigi be prosecuted for fraud, together with his wife Irene Nzisa and six others.
The six include; Kaneez Noorani, Mohamed Hussein Noorani, Mohamed Hussanali, Kairu Augustine Thuo, John Nyanjua Njenga and Himanshu Velji Dodhia alias Himanshu Velji Premchard Dodhia.
The eight are facing eight counts of forgery of Deed plans contrary to section 350(1), (2) of the penal code.
According to the charge sheet, the eight conspired to forge the title deed for the land registration number LR1870/11/200 measuring 0.3hectrates under the name of Dodhia Foam Limited purporting it to be a genuine and valid deed plan issued and signed by surveyor G.S Gitau and commissioner of lands Wilson Gachanja.
