A few months after the death of millionaire Jacob Juma, another millionaire is dead. City businessman Horatius Da Gama Rose, 71 who had links with Muchanga Investments died on Friday morning while seeking treatment.
His brother was the late President Mzee Jomo Kenyatta’s lawyer and associate. Before his untimely death, Rose was at the centre of a dispute involving a 134-acre parcel of land in Karen worth Sh8 billion.
The land in question brought troubles to the Lands ministry when it was claimed that the land belonged to a company associated with former NSSF boss Jos Konzolo.
The Karen land case eventually led to the prosecution of then Lands CS Charity Ngilu who was accused of subdividing the land among top government officials, including MPs and other public officers.
