The High Court in Nairobi on Tuesday dealt a blow to the Ngirita family after granting orders prohibiting them from accessing monies held at the Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB).
Justice John Onyiego issued the order following a case filed by Opportunity Internationals Wedco Limited.
“That an order be and is hereby issued prohibiting Ngirita and her two siblings from accessing proceeds in Kenya Commercial Bank, Account Number 1109800584 pending hearing and determination of the case,” Onyiengo stated.
The Ngirita siblings – Phyllis Njeri Ngirita, Lucy Wambui Ngirita, and Jeremiah Gichina Ngirita – were named as respondents in the case.
Opportunity Internationals Wedco Limited moved to court claiming Phyllis Ngirita acquired a loan of Sh800,000 after offering a motor vehicle -Toyota Station Wagon, reg number KCH 753U – as security.
The court was told the company approved the said loan and deposited the money in Ms. Ngirita’s bank account at KCB.
Court documents, however, show the Assets Recovery Agency could dispose or transfer the said motor vehicle or proceed to withdraw and utilize the funds in the said account.
