Former President Daniel arap Moi

A High Court ruled that five properties in Eldoret belonging to a company associated with Former President Daniel Moi, were public property.

The company identified as Lima limited which is also linked to the late Nicholas Biwott, had its title deed for the properties termed null and void by Judge Anthony Ombwayo.

Ombwayo ruled that the land where the court was built on, a fire station, an Administration Police camp and the district hospital, were not available for alienation hence revoked the title deeds.

“In a nutshell, Lima limited unprocedurally obtained title to the properties in issue as the same had been alienated as public land with public utilities and not available for conversion to private land,” remarked the judge.

Former Commissioner of Lands Wilson Gachanja, who was included in the case, opposed the notion that the land was set aside to erect a fire station and an administration camp.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) had moved to court in 2006 in a bid to establish to validity of the status of the lands.

The judge however noted that Gachanja had no power to carry out the alienation of the properties.

As part of his ruling, Ombwayo, revealed that a deal between the company and Transnational bank had been cancelled out.

Moi loses 100 acres of his Kabarak land

 In 2013, the retired president had lost a court case in regards to his Kabarak land in Nakuru County.

Moi’s battle against a fellow rancher Malcom Bell for 100 acres ended in defeat after the supreme court stated that it would only deal with matters that raised serious constitutional problems and not personal appeals.

“It is our view that this matter was well settled and does not qualify to be entertained before us,” said Judges Kalpana Rawal, Philip Tunoi, Mohammed Ibrahim, Smokin Wanjala and Njoki Ndung’u.
