Former President Daniel arap Moi appears to be spending most of his retirement fighting numerous court battles that linked him to various land grabbing cases around the country.

Pulselive.co.ke established that there are at least 14 pieces of land which the courts have found Mzee Moi to have grabbed from the public and subsequently ordered the former President to return the land.

The latest incident was one in which the High Court ordered Moi to pay Ksh.1.06 billion as compensation for illegally acquiring 53 acres of land belonging to an 81-year-old widow, Susan Cheburet Chelugui.

In April, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) successfully convinced the High Court to cancel titles to four pieces of land that were illegally grabbed by Lima Ltd - a company co-owned by Moi.

The EACC was allowed to recover the four pieces of land in Eldoret town and were meant for construction of a High Court station, district hospital, fire station and Administration Police camp.

In October 2013, Moi lost lost a long-running battle over ownership of a 100-acre farm where he built Moi High School Kabarak.

The former President’s neighbor, Malcolm Bell, successfully convinced the courts that the land was grabbed from him. 

Nine years ago in 2010, Moi’s company, Lima Ltd, lost seven pieces of land in a case where the Eldoret Municipal Council won a court case allowing it to repossess 43 pieces of land irregularly grabbed by various individuals.

The 43 parcels of land included a town house on plot number Block 8/574 that had been occupied by the current Deputy President William Ruto (Eldoret North MP at the time).
