Eliud Kipchoge, a two-time Olympic champion, is at the center of a significant legal dispute, being sued alongside three others for the purchase of a contested Ksh.100 million property in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County.

According to court documents, Kipchoge has been sued by Joyce Komen, the wife of former athlete Daniel Komen. Joyce Komen claims that Kipchoge and others purchased the property without her permission.

In the case before Eldoret High Court Judge Reuben Nyakundi, Mrs. Komen accused her husband of disposing of their marital property without her consent.

Athlete Brimin Kipruto and two Eldoret businessmen who own a piece of the now-contested property have also been sued.

In court documents, Mrs. Komen states that she was shocked to learn of the sale of the property to which she claims to have contributed a significant amount of money. She claims that the property, worth Ksh. 100 million, was sold for a mere Ksh.10 million.

"I was shocked to find out that the property was sold off at Kshs. 10 million yet it has developments which boosts its value to over Ksh 100 million," Mrs. Komen says in the papers.

Mrs. Komen, a university lecturer, has petitioned the court to nullify the sale, claiming that the sale and subsequent transfer of title deeds were illegal.

"I secured loans to fund and to develop the property. At the time, we had no place to call home with Komen, what I just want is for the court to nullify the sale of the property," reads the court documents.
