High court has issued warrant of arrest against the director city planning for failure to appear in court
Consequently the court bailiff will arrest M’s Rose Mwema director city planning and Chief land officer Mr. S. G. Mwangi and present them to court on 20 August 2014 to show cause why they should not be send to jail for refusing to obey a court directing to release multi million shillings property to 43 member of Buruburu River bank development committee.
The orders were issued by Justice Mumbi Ngugi on an application by the member’s lawyer Henry Kurauka on grounds that the two have completely refused to release the land to the applicants which they were given by City Council of Nairobi.
The lawyer told the court that the two officers have instead been issuing letters to other parties while being aware the suit property belongs to the applicants.
He said that the officers have even prevented the applicants from paying rates to the Nairobi county government.
