Gospel artiste Alex ‘Ringtone’ Apoko could lose his expensive house in Runda to new management who claim ownership.

According to Kahawa Tungu, Ringtonne has 10 days to leave the home or face forceful eviction from the multi-million home.

The home, situated on parcel number L.R. 7785/94, previously belonged to Mona Ingegard Bjorklund, a Swedish national who died on July 5, 2007.

The letter dated September 28, 2021 by AGN Kamau Advocates indicates that Ringtone acquired the property fraudulently.

“The provisions of the Law of Succession Act mandatorily requires the administrator of the said estate to collect all the assets thereto and thereafter deal with the same in accordance with the said provisions.

The property measuring 0.537200 hectares has been in Bjorklund’s name since 28 May, 1979, according to the Lands Registrar.

Daniel Carling, the administrator of Bjorklund’s properties, has already filed a case in court. He is seeking to repossess the property from the singer.

“Grant of probate of issued by the Swedish Tax Agency. Sealed in the High Court of Kenya at Nairobi by grant of the Court dated 7th June, 2021 on application by Daniel Carling, C/o Frejavagen 15, 17446, Sundbyberg, Sweden, for the resealing of a Grant of letters of probate issued by the Swedish Tax Agency on 10th June, 2017 to the estate of Mona Ingegard Bjorklund late of Sweden who died at Lausanne, Switzerland on 5th July, 2007,” the court papers read in part.

At one time, Ringtone told The Nairobian that a ‘Mzungu’ left him Ksh500 million property.

He later changed the narrative to say that he bought the house. This, he said, was through money he got from motivational speaking and stage performances.

He revealed in 2019 that he has another home in Karen.
