Woman claims the cleric tricked her to sign a dubious deal
SEE ALSO :Sultan heirs, tenants battle over landShe says she bought the land on April 6, 2013, from Collins Ondenyo at a cost of Sh130,000 which she paid in two instalments. Coincidentally, her pastor at Kakamega Gospel Assembly bought land measuring 0.25 hectares adjacent to hers from the same seller. In court documents, she says the pastor tricked the seller into signing for transfer of the whole parcel, saying they would subdivide the land on their own. Since she trusted the pastor, she signed the sale agreement for the original land parcel number BUTSOTSO/INDANGALASIA/2903 which was to be subdivided between the two. However, she avers that she came to learn too late that the pastor had registered the whole land in his name and acquired a title deed. She says being her bishop, she opted to approach him through church elders. Mr Ngachi promised to resolve the matter with the petitioner but he has been non-committal.
