Paid them full amount
The complainants confirmed in court that Muite paid them the full amount.
“Arthi Holdings Company was purchasing the land from the American Company which was disclosed fully to the complainants including others who were purchasing the land,” said Muite.
The representatives of Mwana Mwireri Rironi and Naivasha Farmers said that Muite paid them the previous directors 8 million first and then paid the balance of 16 million.
The case has been pending in a Nairobi court since July 1999. Muite was charged on July 23, 1999, with six counts of stealing money from Mwana Mwireri Rironi and Naivasha Farmers Company. He was charged in his capacity as chairman of Arthi Holdings.
The proceedings were suspended by the High Court in 2002 after Muite challenged the basis of his trial.
