Land surveyor attacked over a disputed family land!

17 July 2012, 11:26 Kelvin Mureithi

A land surveyor in Imenti  North District narrowly escaped death  at whisker when he was attacked on Saturday afternoon with a panga while demarcating a disputed family land at Kaing’inyo village.

Victor Mugambi had gone to sub-divide the land while in the company of a colleague and two other local members of the survey committee.

They had been contracted by the brother Lawrence Mwebia to do the work, but in reaching the farm, another sibling brother  opposed to the sub-division and together with their mother confronted the team.

Unaware of the intensity of the dispute, the surveyor demanded the land allotment documents from the opposing kin prompting the man to dash back into the house and emerge out armed with a Panga a bow and an arrow ready for a combat.

The assailant shot an arrow at the land officials who took off in different directions to safeguard their lives. The assailant gave chase and caught up with the surveyor bruising him once in his left foot before he tripped and fell down near a tea plantation in the area, giving the surveyor a narrow gap to escape.

The highly tempered assailant gave out a warning that next time they set a foot to their family territory, they will regret it.
