Kirinyaga Women Representative Purity Ngirici got reprieved after the court temporarily stopped auctioneers from seizing her household items.
The NSC auctioneers had raided her Karen home in Nairobi on Monday, August 9, 2021 in a bid to seize her household items worth Ksh. 5 million over a debt equivalent to the amount owed to Flex Air Charters.
The court order was issued by Principal Magistrate D.M Kivuti on Friday, August 13, 2021.
“That there be a temporary stay of execution pending further directions of the court, and that the application be served upon the respondents (Purity and her husband Andrew Ngirici) for interparties directions on August 23, 2021,” Kivuti stated.
Reports reveal that Ngirici had hired helicopters belonging to Flex Air Charters between May 8 and August 17, 2016, during her campaigns which accumulated to a debt of Ksh 5.9 million.
Speaking about the matter, the Kirinyaga Woman Representative claimed that she was not aware of the matter until auctioneers landed at her home on Monday.
“The auctioneers descended at my residence and took away all the household items including a Ksh. 2 million television sets.
“The whole thing is political; these were my enemies at play. The statement I made over the weekend has really touched them,” Ngirici stated.
Her husband, Andrew Ngirici claimed that he is an astute businessman who had invested in real estate projects adding that the house that was raided by the auctioneers belonged to one of his tenants.
“I want to put the record straight, I am a businessman who owns a house in Karen, and if auctioneers have raided my tenant, that is not me. I don’t stay in Karen, I stay in Muthaiga.
“If there is anyone who has any issue with me, he or she should come straight to me, but so far no one has come forward concerning the issue. Those are haters, sellouts seeking to soil our names,” Andrew stated.
