Rev Njoya sues 'step mother' over land

31 January 2014, 12:43 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Retired PCEA Reverend, Timothy Njoya has moved to the Nyeri High court seeking an enforcement order to have a woman evicted from land he claims to be his.

The move follows a ruling by a subordinate court on April 28, 2005 directing Mary Wangui and her family to vacate the contentious four-acre piece of land in Mukurwe-ini sub-County.

In his application, Njoya said he is the legitimate owner of the land he claims to have acquired from his late father way back in 1996.

Wangui, at the lower court accused the Reverend of trying to dispossess her of the land through unscrupulous means thus exposing her family to the risk of being rendered desolate.

She claimed that she had been married to the Cleric’s father in 1977 and is thus entitled to the contentious land.

Wangui added that the family of Njoya has occasionally condemned her as an intruder with no right whatsoever over the said land.

However, Rev. Njoya told the subordinate court that Wangui was just a casual labourer at their homestead and was never at any given time married to his father.

He also claimed that Wangui’s children belonged to another man in their neighborhood and not his father.

Justice James Wakiaga set hearing date of the case he certified as urgent for February 24, 2014.
