Justice Annet Nyukuri, in her ruling on Thursday, October 19, 2023, said a group claiming to be squatters, Aimi ma Lukenya, had not proved they had legitimately bought the land in 2019.
She observed that despite Aimi producing the title document, the group did not attach vital evidence to show how it acquired the document.
Aimi had filed a fresh application seeking to stop the demolitions.
But Justice Nyukuri observed that Aimi’s conduct after getting temporary orders in 2015 was against its plea for fresh orders.
She said there was evidence to show the group went ahead to sell the contested property to third-party buyers, even as late as this year.
At the same time, she said the group on the other hand never served the court papers as ordered, despite enjoying the court’s shield.
