Anne Njeri Njoroge, the Kilifi-based businesswoman in the Sh17 billion diesel import dispute was on Tuesday, November 14 found at Embakasi Nyayo estate in Nairobi.

Njeri went missing on Thursday last week shortly after she went to record a statement at the DCI headquarters in Nairobi on Kiambu Road.

Her lawyer Cliff Ombeta, confirming Njeri’s safety, said that she was threatened and warned against revealing any details of her capture.

Galana Energies who were contracted by Aramco have laid claim to the 100,000 metric tons of diesel that they claim they sourced from Saudi Arabia.

Njeri had gotten High Court orders from Justice Magare Kizito barring the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) and Kenya Pipeline from offloading the said fuel.

However, KPA issued a statement disowning the businesswoman as the owner of the said fuel. She has today appeared before Justice Ann Ong'injo seeking directions on the said case.

Galana Energies has filed a response claiming they are the real owners of the fuel and are legally contracted by the government to import fuel products.
