IDPs case fails to kick off a second time

02 March 2012, 13:18 Steve Ndihiu

A State Counsel from Attorney General Chambers petitioned the court to set a new date to give an opportunity government agents mentioned in the IDP case to appear. Those listed as defendants in the civil suit include the office of the Attorney General, The State, PS Ministry of Lands, Special Programs and Finance as respondents in their application filed by Kenya National Organisation for Victims of Ethnic Clashes.

The rights organization sought court orders to compel the State to pay for more than 100,000 acres of land that they had identified on behalf of their 350,000 members after displacements during past conflicts in various parts of the country. The matter was scheduled to kick off  before High Court Judge Justice Mr William Ouko as more than 500 victims jammed court precincts before proceeding to Nyayo Gardens where they were addressed by leaders and lawyer Agrey Simiyu.

The case has for the second time failed to kick of because when it was first came for mention the presiding judge was absent. The petitioners include  Dr Peter Kinyanjui, Mr Livingstone Sowe, Mr Peter Tena,  Mr Wilfred Manyara, Ms Margaret James and Mr Charles Mwangi.
