The Commission sued  the accused for grabbing public land valued at Sh100,000,000, where the Kenya National Highways Authority (KENHA) is currently constructing its regional headquarters in Nakuru.
The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission has secured injunction orders from the Nakuru Environment and Land Court over a land that was illegally allocated to a man by his brother who is former Commissioner of Lands.
“The land in question was illegally and irregularly allocated to the accused by his brother,” EACC said in a report.
The Commission sued  the accused for grabbing public land valued at Sh100,000,000, where the Kenya National Highways Authority (KENHA) is currently constructing its regional headquarters in Nakuru.
The Commission has sued the accused, together with the Chief Land Registrar.
EACC said even after they issued a demand, the three defendants have refused, failed to surrender the suit property back to Government thus rendering the recovery suit necessary.
On Monday, Justice Antony Ombwayo of the Nakuru Environment and Land Court issued an order of injunction restraining the accused, his servants, employees or any other person from alienating, selling, advertising for sale the parcel of land.
They were also restrained from transferring, charging, developing, leasing, sub-dividing, wasting, entering and remaining upon, or in any other way dealing with the parcel of land.
EACC said the same time they filed the recovery suit, they had filed an application for the temporary injunction orders under a Certificate of Urgency to preserve the property as hearing of the case continues.
The Court certified the case urgent and issued the temporary orders sought by EACC restraining the defendant from interfering with the land in any way.
The application will be heard on January 26, 2023.
The commission said before they secured these orders, the accused had succeeded to stopping KENHA from continuing with the ongoing construction.
