Intrigues of a ‘dead’ man appearing in court this week unveiled yet another syndicate in land dealings aided by loopholes in the verification of documents.

Mr Kimani Mungai, who was said to have died nine years ago, showed up in-person to a dispute that points to a grave and deep underlying problem in land transactions.
Fraudsters, it emerges, target a particular land then hatch a scam on how to acquire it without breaking a sweat. The end game of deceit is sanctioned by courts which simply make judgments based on documents produced before them.
How Ruth Wambui Kimani, a woman claiming to be a Kimani’s widow managed to get the Sh40 million land transfer papers points to a major loophole in the Lands ministry which is utilised by fraudsters to steal land.
