A 90-year-old granny in Nakuru is appealing to the Chief Justice, Attorney General and Director of Public Prosecutions to intervene and help her settle a 30-year-old running land case.
Niavanui Wanjiru has been entangled in a land row with someone she claims is a close family member since 1988.
The land in question is a 2-acre piece of land located within Zakayo’s Estate in Nakuru.
Wanjiru says that her case has been at the Court of Appeal for the last six years when she appealed a decision by the Nakuru High Court ordering her to vacate the piece of land.
“I have seen it all in the Courts and I don’t see myself getting justice,” said a teary Wanjiru.
“The case has been in court since 1988 and I don’t see it ending soon,” she added.
According to Wanjiru’s son Hudson Mwangi, the problem started when a family member conspired with a lawyer to dispose off the piece of land without her knowledge.
“They took advantage of my mother’s illiteracy and sold the land without involving her and all we want is for the government to intervene and save our mother from eviction,” said Mwangi.
The family also wants three court of Appeal Judges William Ouko, Daniel Musinga and Luka Kimaru to excuse themselves from hearing the case.
According to the family, the three judges were involved in the Nakuru High Court ruling that issued eviction orders against Wanjiru on the 20th of December 2007.
They want the three to disqualify themselves from the case as they don’t have faith in them.
