2 mins read

As urgent, the High Court has certified a lawsuit filed by former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta seeking to compel the government to issue her with a title deed for 1,000 hectares of land based in Taita Taveta County.

Certifying the urgency of the suit, Justice John Chigiti of Milimani High Court on Friday, December 22, 2023 allowed Mama Ngina together with former Taveta MP Basil Criticos to formally file a substantive motion within 14 days compelling the Land Registrar and Attorney General Justin Muturi to issue them with a title on the land measuring 1062.3 hectares in the coastal region.

“The Applicants are hereby granted leave to apply for a judicial review order of Mandamus compelling the land Registrar to issue and release to the applicants the Original Certificate of Title to Land Reference Number 10287/7 as the registered proprietors thereof in the performance of his statutory duties and obligations under the provisions of Sections 26 and 30 of the Land Registration Act, 2012, “Justice Chigiti ordered.

The judge also ordered the Land Registrar and the Attorney General to file their responses to the case within 14 days before the mention of the case on March 5, 2024.

The directives by the court came after Mama Ngina and MP Basil filed the case faulting the government for failure to issue them with a title deed despite being the actual owners of the land.

“In breach of his said statutory obligation or duty, the Land Registrar has to date failed to issue to the applicants (former First Lady and the MP) the said Certificate of Title about the said parcel of land L.R No. 10287/7 Taveta.
