Mama Ngina Kenyatta, the Former First Lady, has taken legal action to request that the Land Registrar grants her a title deed for a 1,000-hectare plot located in Taita Taveta County.

In legal filings submitted to the Milimani High Court, Mama Ngina, alongside former Taveta MP Basil Criticos, asserts that they share co-ownership of the said land.

The pair, who named Attorney General Justin Muturi as a party in the case, stated that they have not received the title deed for the land they rightfully own. Furthermore, they pointed out that only the Land Registrar can provide an explanation for the denial of the title deed.

“In breach of his said statutory obligation or duty, the 1st Respondent has to date failed to issue to the applicants (former First Lady and the MP) the said Certificate of Title in relation to the said parcel of land L.R No. 10287/7 Taveta.

“The said breach or failure by the 1st respondent (the Chief Land Registrar) denies the applicants the statutory right to have or hold the said Certificate of Title as evidence of proprietorship of their said parcel of land,” read the court documents in part.

The pair sought urgent certification of the issue. As a result, Justice John Chigiti issued orders certifying the matter as urgent, requiring Mama Ngina and the former MP to submit a substantive motion within 14 days.

Additionally, Muturi and the Land Registrar were instructed to provide their responses within 14 days upon being served by the applicants.

“The Applicants shall thereafter file and serve their submissions within 14 days. The Respondents shall thereafter file and serve their submissions within 14 days of service.

“The matter shall be mentioned on March 5, 2024, to report compliance,” read the orders in part.
