Governor rescues Anerlisa Muigai from property loss at debt collection
A sitting governor stepped in and saved Keroche heiress Anerlisa Muigai from losing her property to auctioneers.
Addressed exclusively to Kenyans.co.ke On Thursday, May 19, a source familiar with the matter confirmed that Muigai had defaulted on payments awarded to his plaintiff in the amount of Ksh 3.4 million in a defamation case.
The source further added that after months of stalking, the Complainant obtained a warrant for seizure against her property located at the Valley Arcade complex.
Muigai was accused of writing a defamatory statement against a local microfinance company on her social media handles.
Nero Company Ltd. Founder and CEO, Anerlisa Muigai.
“We got a judgment against her for defamation where she was found guilty of writing bad things about microfinance. She was talking about how the company mistreats people. We sued and the court granted a total of Ksh 2.5 million plus interest which rose to approximately Ksh 3.4 million.
“She didn’t pay. We served her everything but she didn’t move anything. That’s when we took out seizure warrants. “, said the source.
After having pinned her, the collectors would have gone to her home but would have been turned away, before obtaining a police escort.
The officers, however, reportedly turned on them after the governor in question made a phone call, allegedly to their superiors.
The incident happened around 11 a.m. Wednesday and lasted about 10 minutes.
“The governor was there but with the bouncers. Basically, it lasted about 10 to 15 minutes. It was around 11 a.m.
“When my people went there to tie up, the guards wouldn’t let them in. We went to get orders to get help from the police and the Court agreed. When they went there- down, I think she’s a neighbor of the governor, he intervened, and being a public officer, I don’t know what phone calls he made and the officers decided not to help,” he added. .
Muigai is an entrepreneur behind the Nero drinking water brand which she founded in 2013 and the heir to Keroche Breweries Limited.
