Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris could be evicted from her Kitisuru house should the courts rule against her.

Ms Passaris is embroiled in a fight with the owner of the Sh300 million house and two others who allegedly bought the house from the owners.

Court papers indicate that Ms Passaris had signed a lease with the late Kultar Singh in 2006 and later signed a revised lease with the owner's wife Alka Roshanlal allowing her to purchase the home at Sh35 million.

Ms Alka, however, states that the revised lease she signed was later nullified after her husband cited that she had no right of attorney over the property.

The woman claims that she was coerced into signing the agreement at a time when her husband was deathly ill and the family finances were strained.

"Passaris took advantage of the situation I was facing," Alka claims.

Goons were sent to evict Passaris

The Nairobi legislator has also told the court that goons were sent to evict her from the house claiming that they were acting for Charles Kanyuga and his wife Grace Wanjiku in 2014.

She refused to leave the house stating that the sale was null and void citing that there were court orders in place preventing any action on the property until the case is decided.

On Monday, the legislator requested the hearing date to be postponed to accommodate her schedule.

"The case was scheduled for hearing on July 22, 2019 but we have received a letter from her [Passaris] lawyer, saying that she will be traveling to Barbados to represent the National Assembly at a global convention on the discrimination of sexual orientation and gender identity," Alka's lawyers relayed asking the court to speed up the hearing.
