The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

A fam­ily from Kure­soi South sub­county has ap­pealed to the gov­ern­ment to in­ter­vene in a land dis­pute.

The chil­dren of Wil­son Rotich yes­ter­day said Kirobon Farm­ers Co­op­er­a­tive grabbed and sub­di­vided their fa­ther’s 200 acres with­out his con­sent.

They said the co­op­er­a­tive di­rec­tor took ad­van­tage of Wil­son’s poor health to forcibly take over the land.

Daugh­ter Brenda said the co­op­er­a­tive al­lo­cated land to her two brothers and left her out. “My fa­ther in­structed that the land be sub­di­vided equally among all the chil­dren, re­gard­less of gen­der. I read mis­chief,” she said.

Co­op­er­a­tive sec­re­tary Richard Rotich said Wil­son, a mem­ber of the as­so­ci­a­tion, di­rected that the land be di­vided equally be­tween his two wives.

“We ob­tained con­sent to di­vide 100 acres among the chil­dren of the first wife. The sec­ond wife’s land re­mained in­tact as per the owner’s will,” Richard said.
