The indomitable activist Okiya Omatata, who is famous for chaining himself outside ministry of education's office, might soon get a comrade after an old mzee threatened to camp outside the state house.
The man, who was speaking during judiciary open day dubbed 'elewa haki yako' at Whispers park in Nyeri town, narrated his ordeal with courts since the year 1994 when his son was killed in an accident.
The mzee, who claimed to have fought dearly for this country, was wondering how the country he fought for had turned against him.
He questioned why the case file could get lost and yet the court store had never been razed down.
Humorously, the man asked the media to publish his plight for the whole nation to know how he has been neglected.
His efforts to get justice has been futile even after writing numerous letters to the immediate former chief justice Evan Gicheru and even to the AG but 18 years down the line justice is yet to come his way.
The mzee said the only option left is for him to camp outside state house if no action is taken soon.
Delays by the courts and land issues were the top issues raised by the public during the session.
Nyeri High court judge James Wakiaga, who was among the guests, challenged the public to try other means of solving conflicts such as arbitration to reduce congestion.
He said " Justice must not be bought but it has cost which all parties involved must be ready to pay."
