Former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta sues Kenyan Goverment

Former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta, along with former Taveta MP Basil Criticos, has taken legal action regarding a parcel of land measuring 1062.3 hectares in Taita Taveta. They have filed a lawsuit against the Chief Lands Registrar and the Attorney General, alleging that these authorities have failed to issue them a Certificate of Title for the land in question.

In their court filing, Mama Ngina Kenyatta and Basil Criticos are seeking the court’s intervention to compel the lands registrar to provide them with the original Certificate of Title for the Taveta land referenced as LR No. 10287/7. They assert that they are the registered owners of this property.

According to court documents, “The applicants are the joint operators and owners of the parcel of land known as LR No. 10287/7 Taveta….” The applicants argue that the lands registrar has neglected to issue them the Certificate of Title, even though they were the registered owners as joint proprietors before the land was subdivided.

Following the subdivision, the parties involved transferred the subdivisions, each receiving its respective certificate of title. The applicants claim that over a year has passed since the property was registered under the provisions of the land registration act, yet the registrar has not issued them the expected certificate of title.

The applicants contend that this failure has deprived them of their right to possess the certificate as evidence of their ownership of the land. They emphasize that the registrar, as the custodian of these documents, is the key figure to explain the reason behind denying them the certificate of title.

The court has acknowledged the urgency of the matter, granting the two applicants leave to challenge the issues raised. They are instructed to serve their motion within 14 days. The case will be mentioned on March 5 to report compliance.
