Athlete Komen moves to High Court to ‘recover’ Sh21 million from speaker Terer
Athlete Daniel Komen has moved to the High Court to recover his money that Uasin Gishu speaker Isaac Terer allegedly swindled.
Attempts by Terer’s lawyers to bar the media from covering the case were rejected by the court. Terer’s lawyer Bernard Lang’at has argued that some of the media reports on the matter were subjudicial.
Komen wants Terer’s accounts frozen unless he deposits Sh12 million as part of the money he is demanding. Justice Anthony Ombwayo of the High Court in Eldoret will hear the case in which Komen claims Terer conned him out of Sh21 million. The athlete said he had contracted Terer as his financial adviser and had asked the speaker to buy land on his behalf, saying he lost his money in the process. The case will be mentioned on December 7.
