  • Anerlisa claimed the auction was just a part of a larger plot to humiliate and embarrass her.
  • According to the Keroche heiress, reports that she hid in a neighbor’s house while the auctioneers were at her gate in Nairobi are false as she claims she was in Nakuru at the time.
  • She narrated how her house help called and informed her of the auctioneers at her gate, which she scoffed off at.

City socialite, business magnate and Instagram influencer Anerlisa Muigai has come out to address reports of an alleged attempt to auction her properties following a loan default on Thursday.

Anerlisa, in a string of posts on her Instagram stories, claimed the auction was just a part of a larger plot to humiliate and embarrass her.

According to the Keroche heiress, reports that she hid in a neighbor’s house while the auctioneers were at her gate in Naiorbi are false as she claims she was in Nakuru at the time.

She narrated how her house help called and informed her of the auctioneers at her gate, which she scoffed off at, before she (house help) later sent her a photo of the documents, which she then forwarded to her lawyer.

She also defended her lifestyle saying a posh Bentley car she posed in at the height of the auction drama did not belong to her, adding that she down not fake things.

“My house help called me and told me ‘Madam kuna watu kwa gate wanasema wamekujia vitu za nyumba na gari’… I was like ‘apana they have the wrong house number’…she said ‘apana wamesema wamekuja kwa Ann Muigai na wako na documents hapa.’ I quickly told her to send me pictures of the documents on my WhatsApp,” she wrote.

“Shock on me I was being sued for defamation. I sent my lawyer the document and he asked me 2 questions ‘were you ever served by anyone?’ I said NO. ‘Did anyone alert you that this case was on going?’ I said NO. He said then this case was done maliciously to get me off guard and extort money off me.”

Anerlisa claimed that the plot was initially set to be executed two years ago after the death of her sister, when the parties involved perceived that she was “at my weakest.”

She however reportedly thwarted the process when she flew out of the country immediately thereafter.

“Looking at the first papers I was brought, this whole process was to happen 2 years ago and I found out this just yesterday when a close friend called me and told me that one of the guys was so drunk in the bar shouting they had planned to get me at my weakest when I had just rested my sister but they couldn't because I left the country to go back to TZ,” she stated.

Auctioneers on Thursday afternoon camped at the Nairobi home of the Nero Company boss in a bid to execute a court order ruled against her.

According to court documents seen by Citizen Digital, Anerlisa defaulted on the payment of a loan she took from Mwananchi Credit, got sued for failing to service the loan, entered into an online defamation imbroglio with her lender and now owes the financial institution and its director Dennis Mwangeka Mombo about Ksh.3.4 million.

The money stems from a late 2019 court ruling that saw Anerlisa ordered by the High Court to pay Mombo Ksh.2.5 million for online defamation.

"Anerlisa defamed my client after we went to court to sue her for failing to service her Ksh.13 million loan. After a lengthy court process, the High Court awarded my client, Mr. Mombo a huge amount of money after she used her Facebook and Instagram accounts to attack my client, publish false material about him, make reckless and negligent statements and cause damage to my client and his business," Mombo’s lawyer Andrew Kulobo told Citizen Digital on Thursday.

Samumu Auctioneers, under instructions from lawyer Andrew Kuloba (acting for Mwananchi Credit and Mombo) arrived at Anerlisa’s Nairobi home to effect the court orders but were, at first, allegedly rebuffed by a top politician before they sought protection from the nearby Kilimani Police Station.

“Our intention was to effect the court order. We had express permission to break into the debtor’s house and carry away property that would help us raise the said amount but things got ugly even before my auctioneers had accessed the debtor’s house,” Kuloba said.

“It’s very unfortunate that such a high-ranking member of society, a top national leader, would want to interfere with a court matter like this that had nothing to do with him at all. He intimidated my deputies, threatened to call goons on them and eventually sabotaged a lawful process using his power and office.”

The lawyer added: “Apparently, he is Anerlisa Muigai’s close neighbor and, we are told, the lady sought refuge in his house after the auctioneers came calling. Our work was immediately halted and the police we had brought along with us were asked to leave the scene and abandon the process.”

In another document seen by Citizen Digital, titled ‘Proclamation of Attachment/ Repossession and Distraint of Movable Property’, Anerlisa’s ‘Household goods, a vehicle registration number KBX 509R and another vehicle, registration number KBX 888N’ were subject to an auction and were valued at Ksh.4 million.
