Assignment Task: Law of Contracts

On 20th April 2023, Omwami Lukorito signed a written sale agreement to buy five acres of Hassam Karanja's freehold land at Limuru known as Limuru/Silibas/Sisoi/10.  Karanja signed the agreement which was witnessed by a lawyer from the firm of Loluka Advocates, LL.P. The agreed purchase price was Kenya Shillings Twenty One Million (Kshs. 21,000,000/-).

The completion date was 30th May 2023, after which Karanja was to give vacant possession of the property to Lukorito. Pursuant to the agreement Lukorito paid to Karanja the full purchase price. Contrary to the agreement and notwithstanding Lukorito's requests, Karanja has not completed the sale or taken any steps towards completion. Lukorito is seeking redress and he wants Karanja to be compelled to fulfill his obligations under the agreement and or to pay compensation for breach of the contract in lieu of or in addition to completion.
