Ole Kiyapi running mate’s house destroyed in property ownership row

James Ole Kiyapi’s 203 running mate Winnie Kaburu’s house was on Saturday vandalised in a property ownership row in Westlands, Nairobi.

Mrs Kaburu told Nairobi News that a gang of over 50 men, armed with guns and other crude weapons, stormed into her house on Friday evening and started destroying property.

The attackers broke her watchman’s foot and injured her daughter who is now admitted to MP Shah Hospital, Nairobi.

Mrs Kaburu claims she bought the property located on Raphta Road, off Pilipili Drive.

She said she paid Sh14 million to a Mr Chanda but had not effected transfer of the property.


Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko was among county leaders who visited the home on Saturday morning to face land-grabbing-and-property-vandalism madness that has gripped the city county.

Land cartels have been grabbing properties in Nairobi with impunity, a move that has forced the Cabinet to freeze renewal of land leases.

The grabbers have been evicting families and flattening properties in broad daylight, sometimes with the help and armed protection of police.

Ms Kaburu and Prof Ole Kiyapi were running mates in the 2013 General Elections under the Restore and Build Kenya Party.
