An Eldoret businessman was arrested by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation(DCI) detectives after a fraud case was launched against him by a senior government official. The land in contention is where the military bullet factory owned by the Kenya Defence Forces is situated at Maili Tisa in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu county. This comes after a similar incident where the Deputy president was some time back duped into buying land by another businessman belonging to the late Muteshi at Jua Kali area.
According to a kenyans.co.ke digital platform, the businessman's charge sheet indicated that he sold the land through a forged certificate of Title deed of the said land complete with a signature of Colonel J.W. Michie who is a senior military personnel. The 2000 acre farm land belongs to the military for both training and and storage facility for hardware facilities.
The businessman was accused of selling the land to senior political and government officials including an unnamed CS. Land fraud in Eldoret is a matter of concern with several high level individuals falling prey to land fraudsters using fake title deeds.
