Trouble For Ruto As Intelligence Report Reveals His Name Dragged Into A Serious Land Case

Today, a tribunal will proceed with a case involving public land in Lang’ata, Nairobi and the families that were displaced following the 2007 post-election violence. At the heart of this dispute is the local politician, Mr Saja Muraya, and the alleged misuse of President William Ruto’s name.

The 1,200 families have accused Mr Muraya of selling plots of the public land with the President’s name and have now petitioned the National Environment Tribunal to bar both Muraya and the Director-General of the National Environment Management Authority (Nema) from using Ruto’s name in the dispute.

These displaced persons (IDPs) are fighting for the land they have been occupying for the last 15 years, yet now it is set to be allocated to a private developer, who will proceed with the eviction process.

The tribunal will decide the fate of these individuals and it is hoped that justice will prevail for the IDPs and their situation will be rectified in accordance with the law. This case will highlight the very importance of legal due process, as well as set an example that politicians should never abuse their position by dragging a president's name into a dispute.
