Ruling set to be made on Ruto land appeal case

04 March 2014, 12:53 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A farmer is contesting an appeal by Deputy President William Ruto concerning a land case where the DP has been ordered to pay KES 5 M in damages.

Ruto last week appealed a decision to award farmer Adrian Muteshi KES 5 Million in damages, saying the punishment was excessive.

The DP had lost a case in which Muteshi had succesfully argued that he had been thrown out of an 100 acre piece of land after fleeing during the 2008 post-election violence.

In his appeal, he stated that there was no reason for the fine to be paid as he had not done anything wrong in the process of acquiring the piece of land.

" My client has done absolutely nothing wrong in acquiring the piece of land and had followed all due processes in the acquisition of the land in question, his lawyer Kioko Kilukumi submitted.

But Muteshi argued in court Tuesday that the appeal by Ruto was late and was null and void due to the procedure taken in applying for the appeal.

" The appeal is first of all time barred and does not adhere to the stipulated rules governing the appeal process, his lawyers said.

Justice Rose Ougo, who made the initial ruling in awarding Muteshi the compensation said that the appeal ruling will be heard on March 28, 2014.
