Former Kiambu KANU Secretary General Moses Antony Njehu Boro is on the spot for allegedly threatening his widowed neighbour in Kikuyu Constituency, Kerwa Location over a piece of land.

The neighbour, whom Kahawa Tungu has identified as Margaret, lost her husband an year ago.

According to a neighbour of the two who spoke to Kahawa Tungu, Boro started creating land conflict with an aim of force her out of the land in cahoot with unknown parties . They raised boundary issues.

Margaret, went out of her own way and cost and paid the district surveyor to come an arbitrate the boundary . The widow solely paid the district surveyor Ksh18,000, as shown in the official receipt number 0043056 given by Land Office in Kiambu.

The District Survey Office through the area Chief Mr Waithaka wrote official letters of summon dated September 28 2016 to all the affected neighbors including Boro. This is according to official letter reference ACS/KBU/LAR/Vol.1/159 addressed to all affected persons to attend the land boundary case.

At 4pm when all parties left, Boro and his family moved in and destroyed all the put boundaries. As if that was not enough, on November 6 2016, Boro and family  continued with wanton destruction and malicious damage of the remaining fence and boundaries belonging to the widow. The matter was reported to Kikuyu Police Station and Boro was arrested and released on bail.

Since his release he has been threatening the lady and his family including grandsons that she stays with. The threats have been recorded at Kerwa Police Post  and Kikuyu Police Station, as well as the area chief.

Boro continued threatening to cause the lady and the family harm, if they do not withdraw the case. The officer handling the case at Kikuyu Police started creating delays by file missing excuses during hearing, calling the relatives of the lady and his son with an aim to coerce them. Since 2016, the matter is still pending for hearing in Kikuyu Law court and every time the file is not available.

They raised the issues to IPOA and as recorded under reference number IPOA/CMU/001451-2018. Further to that they did launch a complain on the matter to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) via their twitter as a direct message. Seemingly, the matter has never been addressed.

Yesterday, September 9, Margaret retirement house and all her documents was razed down while she was in church.

“Such are the matters that warrant social justice and she need justice. Her life is in danger as the police are suspected to be working with the man and his agents,” says the neighbour who sought anonymity.

Kahawa Tungu‘s investigative desk is still following up the matter.
