Activist Nazlin Omar in line for KES 2B govt compensation

05 March 2014, 18:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Political activist Nazlin Omar could land KES 2 billion in damages after the state failed to challenge her claim of political persecution.

Ms Omar is seeking compensation for atrocities she suffered under the retired President Mwai Kibaki’s era which according to her were purely politically instigated.

“The atrocities I suffered were purely political because of my hardline positions. They were meant to kill me politically,” Ms Omar said. 

She alleged that in March 2012, the police raided her home, took everything in broad daylight and brutally shoved her.

Ms Omar claims that her international reputation was soiled after “some Government operatives” entered her name in the criminal records without ever charging or convicting her of any crime.

She has sued the state for confiscating all her assets in a police station without explanations, defamation, malicious arrest, prosecution and harassment.

“They took my cars, three Range Rovers, although the Kenya Revenue Authority, KRA had confirmed their ownership to me,” she told Justice Isaac Lenaola.  

She said that she was ready to pay duty for the three cars lying at the CID headquarters but even though the court allowed the release of the cars, they still lie in desolate state.

According to Ms Omar the state terminated all charges against her thus giving her absolute immunity of all charges.

She also claimed that certain individuals working in cohort with the police conspired to kill all her family members and extinct her.

Ms Omar was also arrested, put in solitary confinement for four days in 2009, where she couldn’t access basic necessities like food or water.

The chairperson of the National Muslim Council of Women of Kenya claimed that certain individuals, from Britain and in Kenya wanted to assassinate her dream of becoming Kenya’s first in command in 2013.

The state, the Inspector General of Police and the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP failed to appear before Justice Lenaola which consequentially prompted him to declare that he will deliver a  judgment on April 25.
