Tuju, his 3 children face possible jail terms

The Jubilee Party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju, together with his three children are facing posible jail terms following the court’s latest orders.

According to a report by a local daily dated Friday, July 31, High Court Judge Mary Kasango ordered Tuju and the three children to appear in court on September 21, 2020, to explain why they should not be detained.

The four were accused of disobeying court orders and barring two receiver managers from a bank they owe Sh1.6 billion in defaulted loans from taking over Dari Limited, a company owned by the Secretary-General.

The report further indicated that the four co-accused were the guarantors of the Dari Limited at the time the company borrowed a loan from East African Development Bank (EADB)

EADB had accused Tuju and his children of disobeying a court order and argued that they should be punished for contempt.

In her ruling, Justice Kasango insisted that the two receiver managers, Geroge Waweru and Muniu Thoithi, be given access to the company to run it.

However, in his defense, Tuju’s lawyer Paul Muite, told the court that he had been denied a chance to be heard before the court gave the receivership orders.

The Jubilee party official deposited Sh50 Million into a joint account as a way of preventing the bank from auctioning his company.

On March 3, 2020, Justice Grace Nzioka read out a ruling that allowed EADB’s appointed receivers to take over the administration of a 20-acre piece of land in Karen and the lavish Dari Hotel belonging to Raphael Tuju.

The prime land and the luxurious Hotel had been used by the SG as security when he was borrowing the loan.

This case stems from a loan of Sh933 million that Dari Limited had secured from the East African Development Bank, which later accumulated an interest exceeding Sh600 million.
