Kikuyu musicians caught up in Lesedi Developers scam as company shuts down with Ksh 1 billion missing

Controversial land-buying company Lesedi Developers has been shut down after allegedly defrauding investors with more than sh 1 billion.

The company’s director, Geoffrey Kiragu, used prominent Kikuyu musicians and popular vernacular stations to advertise the company, leading to a loss for many investors who had bought land from the company.

The news of the company’s closure comes after a video was shared online showing a man defacing branded images of the musicians, among them Samidoh, who had been contracted as brand ambassadors for the company.

A notice informing clients that the company is closed has been hung at the main entrance.

Investors who had been conned by Kiragu staged protests in Thika Town and urged the government to intervene.

The closure of the company is a significant blow to the investors who had bought land from Lesedi Developers.

The Kenyan government has recently been cracking down on fraudulent land-buying companies, and the closure of Lesedi Developers is seen as a step towards cleaning up the industry.
