The trustees have not collected Sh79,902,200 from Mahadi Investiments which bought some property along Valley Road Nairobi.

RBA gave the directions after hearing a petition of 6000 pensioners filed by lawyer Titus Koceyo who disclosed that for over ten months they have not received their monthly perks running more than Sh750 million.

Besides arrears, the pensioners are also asking RBA to stop the trustees from irregularly selling five properties of their Sh30 billion base assets.

Mr Koceyo states in the petition that the trustees have without consent of the pensioners placed an advert in the media inviting bidders to purchase properties in Nairobi and Mombasa.

The pensioners state that the trustees have invited bidders for properties along Woodland in Hurlingham Estate measuring 0.48 acres, Ngara (43 acres), Mombasa/Block XXVI/941 measuring 2.67acres along Chambilo Road, Kizingo Area comprising two four-story block of flats each comprising 16 units of two bedrooms each.
