Ex-Governor William Kabogo's Heavy Hand Exposed in High-Stakes Property Dispute

Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo is embroiled in a contentious house-ownership dispute with one Mrs. Njeri Gathecha who claims to be a victim of ongoing abuse.

Speaking out during an interview with a local tabloid, Njeri Gathecha and her husband William Gathecha recounted the tumultuous journey they endured in pursuit of their dream home before their aspirations led them to Iguta Paradise Homes, a promising housing development in Runda, along Kiambu Road, where they learned of spacious 4-bedroom units on a quarter-acre plot.

“My name is Njeri. I’m married to William Gathecha. We have always had an ambitious goal to own a house. Other than raise our large family, the house had to be in a serene area as it’d be our retirement home. We have spent decades actively working towards this dream.”

“In 2021, we learnt of Iguta Paradise Homes, a housing development in Runda, along Kiambu Road. It consists of 4-bedroom units sitting on a 1/4 acre of land.”

Njeri Gathecha and her husband say they were the first clients to move in despite the houses not being completed at that time.

“We made the booking, paid relevant deposits and later completed the payments. Due to the excitement of achieving home ownership – we were the first clients to move in – even before completion of the houses,” Njeri recalls.

However, their optimism soon turned into a nightmare as they found themselves entangled in a legal battle over the property's ownership.

“Over the years, we have enjoyed a cordial personal and business relations with former governor William Kabogo – so it did not raise alarm for the delay in the processing of the lease.“

“Around this time, my husband Gathecha was elected Chairman of the Iguta Residents Association.”

“Our house overlooks a natural pond – which, as the development continued – revealed a stunning lake view which had not occurred to the owner before the construction begun.”

“It is for this reason that former governor William Kabogo developed malicious interest to repossess our house.”

"The conflict reached a boiling point on October 31, 2023, when an unannounced fumigation exercise endangered their lives and that of their loved ones.”

“On 31st October 2023, the first of many incidences occurred in the systemic abuse, harassment, intimidation and outright violence to make us vacate.”

“We were shocked by the recklessness of the act,” Njeri adds, expressing concern over the safety of their children, staff, and pets.

“The first was triggered by a fumigation exercise – no notice was issued – which endagered my children, staff and pets. I received calls that dangerous chemicals were being sprayed all over the property.”

Subsequent events included power outages affecting the entire estate, with backup generators failing to provide power to the Gathecha residence, despite numerous inquiries. This led to the installation of a generator, 

Amidst the chaos, her husband William Gathecha reached out to Kabogo seeking clarification.

But to his surprise, he was reportedly assaulted by Kabogo and his bodyguards, leading to a police report being filed on the same.

“My husband Gathecha reached out to Kabogo with an inquiry. The response was hostile. On this date, my husband was seriously assaulted by Kabogo and his bodyguards. My husband made a report at Kiambu Police Station, OB54/31/10/23.”

Subsequent events included power outages affecting the entire estate but backup generators failing to provide power to the Gathecha residence despite numerous inquiries.

Fed up of the inconveniences the outages were causing them, the Gathechas installed their own private generator in their compound which further aggravated the situation. Oral threats were made as reported on May 11, 2024, at the Kiambu Police Station.

“Earlier this year, when the rains came – the entire estate experienced frequent power outages and backup generators kicked in – excluding our house. My husband made numerous enquiries to get power in vain. It hit hard, as we are housing an elderly parent who needs power due to an oxygen machine. Frustrated, my husband installed a generator. This attracted further animosity from William Kabogo, insisting that it affected the estate’s power connections. He upped harassment on my family, and staff.”

“We endured searches, restrictions, and even threats, all orchestrated to force us out,“ Njeri recounts.

“We have endured unnecessary searches at entrance points, no deliveries can be made to the house, and so on.”

“On 11th May 2024, my husband had to make a second report at Kiambu Police Station (OB17/11/5/2024) for oral threats against my family and unlawful detention of my staff. In both cases, no action was taken by the police.”

William Gathecha has since resigned from his position in the Iguta Paradise Homes Resident’s Association and the family is now seeking justice.

“The former governor is keen to repossess the house, and due to the danger it exposes my family – we have continually asked him to refund the cost of the house at current market price. My husband William has also resigned his position in the Iguta Paradise Homes Resident’s Association. I’d wish to make the incidences known to the public – the harassment and the danger to my family – incase it get’s worse. The former governor William Kabogo is influencing the local law enforcement – no action has been taken despite numerous reports at Kiambu Police Station. I’m seeking justice.“
