Agency vi­o­lated my rights by re­vok­ing Ki­ambu ti­tle deed, says for­mer leg­is­la­tor

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

For­mer Ki­ambaa MP Stan­ley Githun­guri has sued the Na­tional Land Com­mis­sion over a dis­puted mul­ti­mil­lion-shilling prop­erty in Ki­ambu county. In a suit filed on Fri­day at the Mil­i­mani law courts, Githun­guri ac­cuses the com­mis­sion of dis­pos­sess­ing him of the prime prop­erty by re­vok­ing his ti­tle deed with­out fol­low­ing due process. Through the law firm of Munga Kibanga, the politi­cian claims NLC, in a de­ci­sion com­mu­ni­cated to him on Au­gust 15, took away his own­er­ship right of Tas­sia Cof­fee Es­tate with­out giv­ing him an op­por­tu­nity to de­fend the land. “I first learnt on 17 Novem­ber 2015 through the me­dia of a no­tice pub­lished by the NLC pur­port­ing to re­view the grant over ti­tle no Nairobi block /97/1736 by the com­mis­sion. On Au­gust 15, I learnt that NLC had re­voked the ti­tle,” Githun­guri says in an af­fi­davit. He says the de­ci­sion vi­o­lates his rights and the rules of nat­u­ral jus­tice, and ac­cuses NLC of bias.
