Woman gets 4 years in jail for land sale

These were monies she took for the sale of a piece of land which she never owned.

Girigi Goasa Mose made representations to the owners of JDM Ltd that she was selling land at Taurama for K150,000 in 2009.

Acting Judge Nicholas Miviri sentenced the 47-year-old mother-of-four to 4 years in jail with hard labour today after he convicted her on 12 July for misappropriating K120,000.

Mose falsely pretended to act on behalf of her family and clan to sell a piece of customary land in Taurama, known as Odahara, Portion 2763c – 2765c.
