An unhappy customer has exposed Zulu Mabati for running a scam and failing to honour a refund order issued by the Small Claims Court.
The company’s owner is named as one Lynette Nduta, who allegedly disguises herself as the procurement manager on her LinkedIn account.
I purchased roofing materials from Zulu Mabati in March but they have never supplied them.
Lots of lies from the proprietor who impersonated the procurement manager but I later discovered that she is the business owner.
I took the matter to the small claims court and was found guilty but still never paid despite issuing us a payment plan.
Their Facebook account is still active and I understand that they have defrauded very many Kenyans.
A few months ago, 3 of us gave negative google reviews on them, seems they went on to mobilise colonies to give great reviews of them as over 10 positive reviews came in around the same time causing me to revise my review to warn prospective buyers not to be deceived by the false reviews.
Kindly help me profile the proprietor.
Her name is Lynette Nduta.
She’s the sole proprietor but has disguised herself as the procurement manager on her LinkedIn account.
When I paid Zulu Mabati for roofing materials, they were to deliver in 3 days but didn’t.
They lied the machine had broken down, and two weeks later no progress.
I requested a refund, lied signatory was out of the country, and more lies followed for a month or so.
I reported the matter to the police but no action was taken, took the matter to the small claims court and judgement was given in our favour.
I received a payment plan that was never honoured.
I later established the company’s owner and pursued a warrant of arrest on the director which was objected because the company is a legal entity.
However, the company isn’t operational (no offices, no assets etc) so really the owner is simply using it to defraud.
Her advocate told us that her boyfriend ate the company’s money.
But how does someone access business cash? Thought there should be controls.
I engaged her through LinkedIn messager but she’s very arrogant.
I have made it clear I cannot believe whatever she says because it’s been all lies.
It is only recently that she talked of a director defrauding before she said they had bought substandard materials which were recalled.
It’s a lie, she has no offices, no factory, and no godowns.
Seems she was a broker turned fraudster,” the source said.
