Ath­lete Komen moves to High Court to ‘re­cover’ Sh21 mil­lion from speaker Terer

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

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.
