Amos Ngonjo, the Enaai Golf Course Estate Development scammer was yesterday arrested and arraigned in court this morning.

The magistrate was hesitant to touch his file. But later agreed and his case was mentioned. He has been released on a Sh100,000 cash bail.

Those he Scammed were relieved that finally justice has been done but were stunned by the judges decision to set him free with a slap on the wrist.

“The Court has released the guy on a cash bail of 100k. He was ordered to appear before the deputy Registrar on the 20th December 2021 in person. I thought she should have asked him to deposit what he owes before he is released. Kweli he is untouchable”, a source wrote.

Njonjo was to either pay or be committed to civil jail.

How the congame was carried out

In 2012, a company called Enaai advertised a Golf Course estate development project. It was a glitzy advertisement and the location for the project was Nanyuki.

They attracted various buyers for the 1 to 1.5 acre lands which they sold at between Sh1 – Sh3.5 million per acre. Some of the buyers even paid Sh9 million for a 2-acre piece of land just to be in ‘the next big thing’.

Cecilian Kimwana was the lady handling office administration works and marketing. The payments were made to Kamondo Gachoka, who has since become a Judge at the Judiciary of Kenya.

To make the con look good, when buyers inquired about the project’s progress, some few equipments were brought on site which were later carted away. Clients complained of directors being rude when called.

Frustrated, one of the buyers sued the directors in a civil case and was awarded payment refund plus damages by a Nyeri court, however, to date no payment has been made. This shows that these cons are untouchable.

Buyers contacted each other and formed a WhatsApp group, some of them are lawyers. They discussed a lot of issues regarding their predicament.

An advert on the Daily Nation stating that the Ennai land was to be auctioned opened a can of worms on the ownership of the land.

It emerged that the directors took a loan of Sh200 million with the piece of land for project. Lawyers released funds to them erroneously, they used the project land title as collateral.

It was also found out that they had no intention of doing any project in the first place. They had used the Sh1 million and Sh2 million to buy land cheaply, they duped clients and the bank by building a mock house about the project. They hyped the project, and overvalued it on paper, then used the project as collateral for a huge amounting to the aforementioned Sh200 million.

The conned clients having exhausted the available option went to report the issue at the Kilimani DCIO. The directors, Rama and Gichuhi, were summoned to appear before the police. However, the main guy going by the name Amos did not appear, he is the untouchable guy who was also very rude to DCIO.

DCIO confirmed the case to be a criminal one; that of obtaining by false pretense.

The police appointed a Mr Bashir as the investigation officer. Mr Bashir turned rude to clients in subsequent visits.

The case got cold.

So, Kenyans this is how the game is done:

“Advertise land with project, fools pay up. Use the collateral to get an even higher amount, with this one can buy the system.

Amos Ngonjo has done the same and might be having an insider in these banks, and of course hosting baba in his offices.

A new con being hatched

In 2019, the architects of the above congame were said to be on another one. A leather tannery is being built by Bonfide Group
