Shell sues City Hall in land row with ex-councillor
Oil marketer Vivo Energy, which trades in Kenya as Shell, has accused City Hall of colluding with a former councillor to defraud it of a one-acre piece of land along Ngong Road valued at Sh180 million.
Vivo has moved to court in a bid to stop City Hall and Red Kaka, a firm owned by former Woodley Ward representative Peter Kamau Nyutu, from interfering with its ownership of the land.
The oil marketer says Mr Nyutu’s firm has colluded with City Hall officials to illegally obtain ownership documents by telling the registrar of titles that it had lost the original title deed.
Vivo adds that Red Kaka intends to use the provisional title to sell the land to another company.
