Mountain View estate
A court has stopped the eviction of a woman from a Sh 30million house after a petition was brought before it by her daughter. A Nairobi based lawyer wanted to bar her mother and sister from a prime property in the Mountain View estate.
The lawyer accused the two of trespassing in her property and also for being a nuisance. Senior Resident Magistrate Geoffrey Onsarigo, however, halted the move that would have led the woman to be homeless.

In her defence, the lawyer stated that she was the rightful owner of the property through a sales agreement dated January 6, 2005. The land belonged to her late father who was also a Deputy Commissioner of lands.
“The defendants (mother and sister) between September 11 and September 23, 2020, trespassed into the premises interfering with my quiet enjoyment,” she stated as she also requested the court to bar the two from accessing the apartment.
The mother on the other hand filed a suit against her daughter while also requesting she be served with orders barring her from accessing the same. She claimed the property was her matrimonial home and for more than a decade after purchasing it with her husband in 2005.
