A family of over five members spent a night in cold after the police and several armed villagers evicted them from their farm claiming they were enforcing a court order that authorized removal of the family from the farm famously known as Haraka B in Mau summit Kuresoi District.

The owner of the farm,  Joseph Njoroge Nduati said he has been living in the half acre piece of land that he inherited from his parents alongside other five families and was not aware of any court order adding that the case concerning the Haraka farm was still pending in court and it involved all owners but not him alone.

He claimed that there was a plot to deprive him off his land adding that he was not served with the order to move out of the farms where he was born and brought up.


Njoroge said his mother moved from the area after the first multiparty elections that led to tribal clashes leaving him to developing the land.

He claimed that the forceful eviction caused him a loss of over a million shillings adding that there was a plot to take away his land since he was the only one at Haraka farm whose homestead and property was destroyed.

According to a village elder,  David Ngugi Karanu armed police officer from Mau summit police station led by OCS Mary Wacu arrived at the farm together with 20 young men who brought down several house in the homestead.

He said the court had barred any eviction adding that even the shelter that was built by the Danish Refuge council to replace the ones destroyed during the skirmishes was also destroyed and money of unknown value stolen.


He claimed that Mr. Joseph Mwangi who sold the farm was using dubious means to repossess the land adding that would sue him for the damages caused.

Molo OCPD Achesa Litabalia confirming the incident said the police were enforcing the court order which was issued last week demanding the families to move out of the farm.

He said he was not aware of any other order that stopped eviction of the families adding that it was unfortunate if the families were not issued with the order before eviction.

Meanwhile the residents held a peace demonstration and condemned the incident calling on removal of OCS Mary Wacu for enforcing eviction before the court concludes the case.
